From Chef Oonagh Williams of Royal Temptations Catering
I’m not a fan of a strong tasting goat cheese. This is how I make this recipe, but your taste will be different from mine and your goat cheese could be stronger. Using different herbs and olive oils will all make a difference to the final taste.
It is so easy to grow fresh herbs in containers, even on an apartment balcony and bring them in for the winter in the north. Try it – the flavors added are wonderful. I grow parsley, chives, thyme, lemon thyme, rosemary, sage, basil, Thai basil, oregano and my own lettuce. My students love being able to crush the fresh herbs, smell them and then taste the difference they make to a recipe.
