Mario Batali Features Our Chèvre!

Clouds of Goodness
Gothberg Farms Fresh Chèvre 

Well known Chef Mario Batali cooked up another fantastic recipe on ABC TV series The Chew.  He uses OUR fresh chèvre!  We are pretty excited about this.  I’ve been using his recipes for years (I have him installed on my iPhone as an app with great regional Italian cooking recipes & education).  Our beloved employee, Debbie literally danced around the farm all day yesterday as he is her All-Time Favorite Iron Chef.

Here is the link to the video and printed recipe.  It truly showcases the Pacific Northwest great foods.  Very excited to make this one!

Thank you all for your support over our almost 8 years of doing this!!!!

Goat Yogurt Day!!!

First of the season for our sweet, tangy, delicious Gothberg LaMancha goats’ milk Greek style yogurt!!  It will be at both markets this Saturday.

Those of you who know it & love it-enough said.  Call me if you want quantities saved & brought for you.  It freezes really well & that is what several of us do to get through til the next batch is made.  I only make it about once a month, and summer season only.

More New Goat Cheeses

Queso Fresco w/ Dill & Garlic

We are pretty excited about a couple of new cheeses we are bringing to the markets this weekend.  It is our traditional Queso Freso-with spunk!  Now offering it with Dill & Garlic (which is toasted).  This is so summer-tasting!  We immediately thought of pairing it with fish and a good beer.   Maybe even fish tacos??? You decide and let us know.

Queso Fresco w/ Chives & Parsley

 The other is our same Queso Fresco with Chives & Parsley.  So summer-y fresh!

Look for both of these at the markets this weekend.  We will be in Anacortes (9-2) and Bellingham (10-3), both on Saturday.

Edible Seattle Cookbook Available at Our Farmers Markets!

We have the extreme pleasure of being included in this beautiful cookbook.  Editor Jill Lightner has done it again!  It is filled with simple, tasty recipes using local ingredients.  The recipes are not so complicated you need a personal chef to make them happen!  http://edibleseattle.com/subscribe/edible-seattle-the-cookbook.htm

Beginning this weekend (5-27-12) we will have these beautifully illustrated books available at our farmers markets booths.  They make great gifts as they showcase our amazing food connections in the Pacific Northwest.

Help Wanted: Cheesemaker

We are looking for a part-time, seasonal cheese maker here at Gothberg Farms.  Commercial cheesemaking experience helpful but willing to train the right person.  In lieu of cheesemaking experience will consider work experience in a commercial kitchen/food background.  Baking experience a plus.

Goat Cheese Saturday April 14, 2012

Yay!  A Cheese Saturday.  We will be at:

Anacortes Farmers Market    9am-2pm   Jenna will be your host

Bellingham Farmers Market  10am-3pm  Debbie will be your host

FRESH Chèvre, feta crumbles (!), gouda, Woman of LaMancha, our newest Queso Cilantro, Cabra Roja, plus other favorites.

Love our Happy Customers!

Cheese & Beer “In the News”!

We love to pair really great cheeses with really great beers.  Lucky us, we have both right here in our own part of the world!  Here is a great article in Seattle Met magazine featuring some awesome choices.  How fortunate they chose our Woman of LaMancha!  It is a personal favorite, and a true Northwest original cheese-only from Gothberg Farms.  It is indeed a hearty yet versatile cheese. Full of flavor, pleasantly sharp, aged one year (or more). The beautiful & delicious rind is rubbed with olive oil and smoked Spanish paprika. Pairs very well with beers & cured meats.  Also melts well on grilled cheese or quesadillas.
