Cape Vessey is a chewy, pungent, cheese made with goat’s milk. Cape Vessey is a washed-rind cheese, which gives the rind a vivid orange-pink colour. The paste is very pale, typical of a goat milk cheese, and is semi-firm Asiago like texture. Slightly salty, the flavour is creamy and nutty on the inside, with a slightly yeasty flavour near the rind. Cape Vessey won Grand Champion Goat Cheese at the Royal Winter Fair 2008. $11 (approx. 140 g)
