Goats cheese, otherwise known by its French name chèvre (pronounced “shev”), is drained longer than fresh curd, creating a creamier mouth feel with a drier and denser texture. We all know chèvre is a delicious pizza-topping and valuable in any salad, so we’ve gone one step futher and found four mouth-watering recipes so you can really get your Milawa goats cheese on!
Tangy goats cheese and crunchy, golden pastry were just made to go together! Treat yourself to this delicious (and easy to make) zucchini and goats cheese tart for a warming dinner and serve with fresh side salad to break up the dryness of the pastry. Be sure to make enough of the tarts to also have some cheeky leftovers for lunch the next day!
We refrain from picking in the sweet vs savoury pancake debate, but these squash, goats cheese and rosemary pancakes make a good case for the savoury side! Serve these fluffy, golden pancakes with a side of dressed rocket salad, a sprinkling of either pumpkin seeds or toasted pine nuts and a flavoursome onion chutney. The perfect choice for a tasty Sunday morning breakfast.

If you’re after something that’s both sweet and savoury (and looks fancy as hell) this is the recipe for you! This goats cheese mousse with grape is a contemporary dish that will impress any guests you may have popping round for a bite. The sweetness of the fruit is complemented by the tartness of the cheese, contrasting with the nutty coffee crumble. Depending on the time of the year you can also play around with which fruit you choose to use as fresh seasonal produce is always a winner!

For a bit of Greek food inspiration, this is a recipe based on the popular little free-form cheesecakes found in Santorini called melitinia. This version, though, is slightly more along the lines of a regular cheesecake but with the addition of goats cheese. The base is made from a pastry similar to that used for kourabiedes, the famous Greek almond shortbread. A drizzle of honey on top finishes the dish so make sure to use a high quality, flavourful honey for that pop of sweetness!Back to Blog
