Goats cheese with honey

Goats cheese with honey on toast

Ingredients for 10 pieces: 10 thin slices of baguette 10 slices of goat's cheese log Liquid honey Fresh thyme or rosemary Preheat the oven to 180°C/400 F/Gas mark 4 Place the bread on a baking tray and bake for 3 minutes. Remove and arrange the goat cheese slices on the bread slices. Bake for 3-4 minutes. Remove and drizzle some honey over the goats cheese and sprinkle with thyme or rosemary. Serve immediately... Pair it with: One of the most classic wine pairings with goat cheese is a Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley, a French region that produces both tangy goat cheeses and bright white wines with crisp acidity that intertwine perfectly. In this case though, let’s venture out to Bordeaux for a bottle of La Fleur des Pins Blanc a delicious wine that combines the roundness of Semillon with the tart acidity of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris, to mirror the sweetness brought by the honey drizzle. Aromas of honey, apricot and white flowers will pair perfectly with the honey while a mouthwatering acidity will balance its medium bodied structure and make it an ideal companion to the goat cheese. The touch of toast from the oak barrel ageing will be perfect with the crunchy French baguette. Laurent Yung, Sommalier.com French Wine Club in the USA.
