The French call goat cheese "chevre" since the French word for goat is (you guessed it) "chevre". The goat cheese in most of the recipes on DrGourmet.com and in my books is a soft or semi-soft goat cheese. The cheese is often in the shape of a log and most of them have about 6 grams of fat per ounce of cheese.
