From Salt Spring Island Cheese in Bristish Columbia comes Basil chèvre. This flavoured soft, pasturized goat’s milk cheese comes with basil layered on top of it. A splash of olive oil helps to infuse the flavour throughout the cheese. It goes especially well on a cheese plate, not only because of its distinctive look, but also because basil is a mild flavour that almost everybody enjoys.
