fig leaf chevre



Goat cheese wrapped with fig leaf then grilled and served with grilled tomatoes, olive oil, pepper and fresh crusty bread.




I washed some fresh fig leafs and placed a large piece of goat cheese in the center.



I folded it into a nice neat little package and oiled the outside.



I grilled it until the cheese started to ooze.




I drizzled a little olive oil and and added some grilled little tomatoes and devoured it with some crusty bread. The cheese was warm and tangy, the olive oil balanced it all out and the fig leaf gave a unique and distinctive 'green' flavor - I would definitely do this again and again and again.

tell you what. We'll come to New York, with nicely aged starter and cook a few loaves of fresh sourdough. You grab fig leaves and cheese, and do the magic you do.

What are you doing New Years? We have friends in the area, and time off work..

mandi: sounds like a deal

chef e: it is so good and you can make individual minis if you want

harmony: you are the best!

tavolini: sounds great -

New Years - not sure where we will be just yet - we fly by the seat of our pants around here....

ayamlin: its a lot different than cow cheese - it is hard to explain

allie411: my thoughts exactly

buff: the fig leaves were just the vehicle - the gave an interesting flavor but we did not eat the leaf

Beautiful cheese. I might toss some figs in the leaf if it were the season and drizzle it with honey for a dessert too.

Maggie said...

Fig leaves! Where did you find the fig leaves? The ooze factor is killer, yummmm!

I LOVE this meal! I have left a couple comments on foodbuzz for you as well, but I swear I'm not a stalker. I'm just really inspired by your blog. I made a version of this recipe with chard and posted about it in my blog, with links to your blog and credit for the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing your cooking with the world.

I'm so sorry I referred to you as a 'she' in my post, I guess I didn't do my research. I shouldn't have assumed you were a woman. I have corrected my mistake.
