I feel like Sam I Am in Green Eggs and Ham, do you like tourteau de chèvre? But instead of saying, I do not like tourteau de chèvre, I would say right away, yes I do Sam I Am, I like tourteau de chèvre and I would eat it in a boat, with a goat, on a plane, in a house and I would serve this tourteau de chèvre for dessert with fresh berries and a drizzle of honey on the side as Dorie suggests. I would also serve it with tea or coffee in the afternoon, or as an appetizer with a glass of chilled white wine or rosé. I would not run away from a cheese torte with goat cheese because although it might sound different, it is wonderful and delicious. It looks like cheesecake but it’s lighter in texture, drier and not as sweet. How can you miss starting with these ingredients, a roll of soft goat cheese, eggs, sugar, cognac and a scraped vanilla bean baked in a pastry. Easily cut into wedges that you can eat of of your hand. My husband just walked in the kitchen and snagged a piece, yum! I think he likes it best for an after work snack. But, he wants another piece after dinner. Me too! I like my routine of making and posting a recipe from Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan every week. Please check out the other posts by fabulous Doristas here at French Fridays with Dorie. Consider picking up my new favorite cookbook, Around My French Table and cooking along with the group. I’m not supposed to give the recipe here, another reason to pick up the book.
