FFWD | Goat cheese and strawberry tartine

IMG_4224

So this is one of the easiest recipes, out of the so many others. However, it did take me out of my comfort zone because the main ingredient required is goat cheese. So, I need to tell you that I am not fond of cheeses. Yes, I don’t mind the common ones like cheddar, mozarella, gruyere, cream cheese and mascarpone. Apart from that, I don’t venture out. So goat’s cheese is…what’s that?

To the supermarket I went and yes, there’s plenty of cheeses. After much search, I found it! Yay!

I know tartines are made on slices of country bread but it happens that I still have a new loaf of wholemeal bread and I’ll just have to bear with it.

It makes for a good breakfast though I don’t really quite fancy it. I’m not a goat cheese person. :p

  1. I think we’ve all stretched our food preferences a little in this group from time to time. We’re fans of goat cheese, so it was a big hit at my house.

  2. Good for you for venturing out of your comfort zone! Next time, try chevre, which is unaged goat cheese. It’s soft and spreadable, kind of the consistency of mascarpone.

  3. I agree with gaaarp. Chèvre would be nicer with this tartine. I found them at Fairprice Finest, and you can certainly look for them at Cold Storage. But bravo for venturing out of your comfort zone!

    • Ah, fellowman! I couldn’t find Chevre but this version on goat cheese in Cold Storage but I really should explore Fairprice Finest.

      Thanks for your encouragement!

  4. Looks good! I have a love hate relationship with goat cheeses. It’s either a hit or a miss. I love them with jams though. I sound confused don’t I? Lol.

  5. Congrats for trying something even though you are not on “team cheese”. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t either as I would probably be 20 pounds lighter…but such is life and I do enjoy it. And enjoy this recipe I did- my whole family went nuts. A keeper for sure. Great job ~ Tricia

    • Thanks Tricia. I’m thinking that goat cheese is not so bad after all, so maybe I should really choose those soft spreadable ones. So good that your family enjoyed!
