Pairing Suggestion – Rosé

The zesty acidity of Rosé cuts through the creaminess of goat cheese, while the touch of honey adds a sweet contrast, creating a balanced and delightful pairing.



  • 8 ounces goat cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (such as thyme, rosemary, or chives), finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey (adjust to taste)
  • Crackers or crusty bread, for serving


1. Prepare the Goat Cheese:

Allow the goat cheese to come to room temperature for easier mixing.

2. Chop Fresh Herbs:

Finely chop the fresh herbs of your choice. Thyme, rosemary, and chives work well, but you can customize based on your preferences.

3. Mix Herbs into Goat Cheese:

In a bowl, combine the softened goat cheese with the finely chopped herbs. Use a fork or spatula to thoroughly mix the herbs into the cheese.

4. Shape into a Log (Optional):

If you prefer, shape the herbed goat cheese mixture into a log using plastic wrap. This makes it easy to slice and serve later. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

5. Plate the Goat Cheese:

If not shaping into a log, simply transfer the herbed goat cheese mixture onto a serving plate, forming a rustic mound.

6. Drizzle with Olive Oil:

Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the herbed goat cheese. This adds a rich and silky texture to the cheese.

7. Finish with Honey:

Drizzle honey over the herbed goat cheese. The combination of creamy goat cheese, savory herbs, and sweet honey creates a delightful flavor contrast.

8. Serve:

Serve the herbed goat cheese with honey alongside your favorite crackers or slices of crusty bread.

9. Garnish (Optional):

Garnish with additional fresh herbs for a decorative touch.

10. Enjoy:

Spread the herbed goat cheese on crackers or bread, and savor the delicious blend of creamy, herby, and sweet flavors.

This Herbed Goat Cheese with Honey is a versatile appetizer that pairs well with wine or makes a sophisticated addition to a cheese board. It’s perfect for entertaining or as a simple yet elegant treat for yourself.
