What an amazing way with goat's cheese. I often serve this cheese to those who can't tolerate cow's cheese. You can bet this will be a staple on my future cheese boards. I did use dill in place of tarragon, because I had it on hand. Otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks so much.

Wow, this is a Great tasting recipe. It would perfectly complement a wine tasting, as a starter to a dinner party, and just for pure enjoyment of the taste buds. I did however make only half of the recipe and added additional garlic, but otherwise, followed the recipe to the T. Highly recommended! Thank you, ellie, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
