ffwd – goat cheese and strawberry tartine

Now THIS is an amazing combination of four simple things! I was pretty sure that it was going to be fantastic, but then again, I’ve been wrong before. Not this time.ย 100_2430

A fresh baguette, soft goat cheese, flavorful strawberries and a balsamic reduction. OK, so I threw in a little fresh black pepper.

This is the simplest of recipes, but the combination is both gorgeous and delicious. On a few of the slices, I did add a drizzle of the pistachio oil from last week – totally unnecessary. Perfect as is, served with a nice crisp white wine.


This was a great late afternoon treat in the garden, watching the birds and enjoying our handiwork. Bravo, Dorie!

  7. Bravo, Dorie, is right. This was a wonderful recipe that, I hope, will just keep giving and giving you many late afternoons of enjoying the beautiful Sedona landscape. And, the birds (I’m a Birder.) Love that area. Love the thought of pistachio oil.
