1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 garlic cloves, crushed or thinly sliced

1 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary

leaves of 2-3 sprigs of thyme

8-10 whole black or pink peppercorns

1/4 tsp. coriander seeds, lightly crushed (optional)

1 250g log soft goat cheese

crusty bread or baguette slices


1In a small saucepan, heat the olive oil with the garlic, rosemary, thyme, pepper and coriander; place the goat cheese in a shallow dish and pour the warm oil overtop. (Alternatively, combine the oil and herbs in a jar; keep in the fridge until you're ready for it, then remove the lid, microwave the jar for 30 seconds, until the oil is hot, then pour over the goat cheese.)


3Serve immediately with crusty bread or crackers. Serves 8.
