Had dinner with friends of mine the other night on a perfect evening. The weather was just great for sitting outside in their lovely backyard before going in to eat. The company was great and the food was outstanding!
To start we had this amazing goat cheese appetizer. I must try this recipe which I will show here – not sure which cookbook it comes from but it was a great. Dinner was yummy BBQ’d steak with roasted tomatoes and asparagus with peppers. Oh soooooo good.
So the above appetizer was made in muffin tins – much like a small terrine.
The tin is lined with plastic wrap and a layer of goat cheese mixed with some fresh chopped chives is pressed into the bottom. Then a layer of smoked salmon is added. Next a layer of thinly sliced green apples and then another layer of goat cheese with some chives sprinkled on top. The cheese is put in the fridge and when ready to serve you pop it out and surround the plate with some capers. My friend put it on a bed of lettuce with was perfect as it was a nice texture with the goat cheese.
Below is the BBQ meal with the roasted vegetables – just a great summer meal!
