You bought goat cheese.
Congratulations! You’ve taken the first steps towards becoming a foodie–a term that can often be misinterpreted. Being a “foodie” doesn’t have to mean that you eat things like foie gras or have a field of sundried tomatoes in your backyard. Seriously, put down the duck confit and stop trying to pronounce Sauvignon Blanc.
Let’s be real here.
In my opinion, foodie can simply mean having an appreciation for fabulous food. It can also mean knowing how to take simple ingredients and give them a gourmet twist.
Now that you have your goat cheese badge, let me show you what to do with it…
