Summer foods for the car and the picnic basket

The Summer Fancy Foods Show just ended and some of the new foods we found are perfect for the car, or if you are going on a picnic. We looked for new foods, not foods that were gooey that would melt all over the car, but fun foods to eat. Some of the foods go in the cooler, but they were so tasty ( and the packaging was so adorable) that we included them.

Goat cheese gone wild!

Laura Chenel has some of the most adorable little buckets of tasty marinated Cabecou goat cheese, flavored goat cheese logs, and goat brie.

The disks of Cabecou is a marinated goat cheese button with a dense texture. They are cut from fresh logs and placed on racks to dry for 5 to 7 days. The new Spicy Cabecou is marinated in Jalapeno olive oil and crushed Chilies that give a spicy punch to the chevre.
