goat cheese

with 2 comments

Yesterday I made goat cheese. I’ve been experimenting a little, although I’m a beginner as far as cheese-making goes. So far I’ve tried various forms of full-milk ricotta, ricotta made from whey as well as a cream cheese. This time I decided to make cream cheese from goat’s milk, using buttermilk as a starter.

This inspired me to make a French style tart. First I made some pastry then I sliced 2 large onions, 2 red peppers and 2 cloves of garlic and gently fried these in some olive oil. When they were quite soft, I added a teaspoon of dried tarragon, some black pepper and a glass of white wine and cooked this until there was almost no liquid left. Next I mixed a cup of my goat’s cheese with one egg, folded the onion mixture through this and placed the mixture in my prepared pastry. I baked it for 45 minutes in a moderate oven and served it with a simple salad of butter lettuce and walnuts with a mustard vinaigrette.
