Goat’s Cheese and Chocolate

Uncategorized | 28th May 2013 | By

As some of you know, I’ve recently discovered the joys of combining goat’s cheese and chocolate. I’ve made several recipes over the last few months with this particular pairing and I’ve been pleased with all of them. I am very keen to continue experimenting, so I put my blog forward for the Best Bleat Awards, the winner of which gets a year’s worth of Capricorn goats cheese. I don’t normally do this sort of thing, but I am sending out a plea to any dear kind folk that happen to come across this post in the next three days to vote for me. I was running neck and neck with one other which is the nearest my blog has ever been in a voting contest before, but sadly I seem to be losing the race.

So do please vote for Chocolate Log Blog before the end of May.

The cheese and chocolate combination has so taken my fancy that I’ve just started a pinterest board for it. To spur you on, these are some of the goats cheese and chocolate recipes I’ve come up with so far:

Goats Cheese and Chocolate Tart

Chocshuka

Beetroot & Walnut Brunch Muffins

Honeyed Fig and Goats Cheese Tart

Update 3 June 2013
I am very pleased to say that I was informed by @EthelTheGoat this morning that I won the Best Bleat Awards and some goats cheese will shortly be winging its way in my direction. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for my blog. Now I just need t come up with some more recipes – eek!

      Thanks Vanessa, I have yet to try Chantal’s goat’s cheese truffles, but I bet they are fabulous.

    Wow, a really interesting combination and I bet it does work (although also quite rich?) Cheese and chocolate – add a glass of wine and all of the major food groups are covered šŸ˜‰

      Thanks for your comment. It is a rich combination, especially the top cheese and chocolate tart and a little goes a long way, but it does indeed work very well.
