Do you love cheese? Because we do! Foudjou is a wonderful French cheese spread, made at home and kept for spreading on croûtes, flatbread and other types of wonderfully baked goods. They are basically "potted" cheeses. This is lovely with a tomato or lentil salad and the O-Live olive oil rounds off the taste perfectly.
- 150g soft goat's cheese
- 90g hard goat's cheese
- 2 tsp thyme leaves
- 2 tbsp brandy or eau de vie
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Mash the soft cheese in a bowl. Finely grate the hard cheese and add to the soft with the thyme. Mash with the alcohol and half the oil. Season. Pack into a small sterilized jar, pour the rest of the oil on top and seal.
- Refrigerate for two weeks before eating, and return to room temperature to serve.
Tastes wonderful as an appetizer on flatbread or a snack for lunch with wine.
