What are spreadable cheeses?

Spreadable cheeses are either fresh cheeses, with little to no ripening, or crème de fromage, a delicious recipe that mellows cheese into a spreadable paste. In both cases, the cheese itself has a fresh taste. It’s usually accompanied by other ingredients, to bring more flavors. This is so for Chavrie, a fresh goat’s cheese log that comes in three flavors: You can use a fresh cheese in its original flavors for your recipes, or simply on crackers, with minimal seasoning, or opt for our tantalizing flavored spreadable cheeses.

It also allows delicious, easy recipes: you can mix ingredients without melting the cheese to make a delicious cheese spread or cheese dip. Some spreadable cheese already contain additional ingredients, such as Alouette Spinach and Artichoke Spread, for a mouthwatering experience.
