Goat's Cheese with Pear and Walnut Salad

Goat's cheese has a distinctive taste which is, for some people, acquired. It is produced in much smaller quantities than cow's milk cheese, often on individual farms. The flavour will vary according to the time of year and the type of feed. If you prefer, use another white variety such as Caerphilly, Lancashire, Wensleydale or white Stilton.
