Goat Cheese Wraps
Not that surprisingly, goat cheese is cheese made from goat’s milk. It has a very distinctive, quite tart flavour and is very good, like many kinds of cheese, when combined with something sweet.
This easy goats cheese wrap recipe, that is heated in a sandwich maker to soften the cheese, combines goats cheese, walnuts, rucula and honey for the perfect taste combination. Make this recipe as a snack or appetizer.
There are many different names for goats cheese, depending on which country you are in. Some types you may have heard of are Feta from Greece, Caprino cheeses from Italy, Snøfrisk from Norway, Gevrik from Cornwall to name but a few of the countless different types.
Methods of producing goats cheese vary all over the world, as it is a very old dairy product that has had a long time for production techniques to be perfected and to diverge.
Some goats cheeses are aged to give a rind to the cheese. Others are soft. We buy soft French goats cheese in the form of a roll from our local supermarket. In France goat’s cheese is known as ‘chèvre’ after the French word for goat. There are many different types of goat’s cheese in France. This Wiki page tells you more.
The roll shape of the cheese we buy makes it easy to cut a slice to eat cold on a cracker, or to crumble onto a tortilla, as in this recipe. The cheese itself is quite crumbly once you cut into it.
Combinations with goat cheese
As mentioned before something sweet goes well to combine with the sharp taste of a goats cheese. In this recipe, honey is the solution, which together with the walnut gives a perfect taste combo. But often you will find goats cheese combined with things like dates or figs instead.
If you make tight rolls of these tortillas and slice them into small coin-shaped pieces, then this recipe makes a very nice appetizer or finger food at a party. When filling the tortilla, use the cheese to help glue the tortilla together when you heat it, and make sure you wrap it tightly. Then slice it after it has cooled down a little bit.
