is a delightful miniature round of goat cheese, barely protected by the very thin Geotrichum rind, which arrives in it’s own convenient wooden box. Pico comes from Perigord, home of French truffles and a few remarkable goat cheese producers (the Loire Valley being the typical source of all things chevre). It is often compared to Camembert, but this cheese stands out on it’s own; sold young, it develops even more as it ages, changing into a more complex and pungent cheese.
