About Me

My photo
I received teaching and engineering degrees and have traveled extensively, living ten years outside the US. I moved from the big city of Houston to a small sleepy community in North Carolina, which has been a tremendous change and a great inspiration for my novels, full of the local color. My time has been filled with writing and helping to physically construct three additions to our former farmhouse. I have a great view of the mountains ten miles away across the broad valley and the sunsets are breathtaking. I am an avid reader of all kinds of mystery and contemporary fiction.

Review of Snofrisk Goat Cheese

Review of Snofrisk Cheese

Let me say first that I am a big fan of goat cheese. And Snofrisk is one of my favorites.

Snofrisk is a creamy goat cheese from Norway. Actually it is 80 percent goat’s milk and 20 percent cow’s cream. Needless to say, that 20 percent cow’s cream makes this a creamy cheese. When it comes to the taste, however, it is definitely a goat cheese. I don’t know how many times I have bought a mixture of goat’s and cow’s milk cheeses and the taste of the goat cheese has been watered down. Mild cheeses, that is. A goat Gouda to me is not a true goat cheese. The texture and taste is more like a cow’s cheese. There is no mistaking Snofrisk for such. The taste is strong and the texture, while creamy, is that of a goat cheese.

I usually eat Snofrisk spread on a hard French baguette or a good crisp cracker, followed by an equally good port, usually a 10-year Offley or a 20-year Cockburn port. While my port is not the cheapest, this goat cheese is inexpensive.

Snofrisk is readily available at my local Whole Life Food store.


  1. Great cheese. Great on triscuits with sriracha sauce on top as well.

  2. I haven't tried this, but it sounds good!
