The reactions are priceless, the gifts...Spectacular. This year, a locally produced goat cheese is a part of the favorite items that Oprah Winfrey hand picked herself.The cheese is called Truffle Tremor.It combines the flavors of a soft ripened goat cheese with black truffles. Oprah has not been to the Arcata creamery, but her staff added the Truffle Tremor to the “maybe list” for Oprah to try. The rest is history..Oprah says: it "might be the best combo since Diana Ross & the supremes."As expected, the Cypress Grove Chevre company is excited to have the endorsement from Oprah. The say the benefits extend throughout the north coast.Cypress Grove Chevre has been making the staple goat cheese products for almost thirty years. When a mother of four turned goat breeding into a lot of milk; cheese making sort of happened by accident.
