A goatally delicious cheese (giveaway c/d 19 October 2012)

As my second blogversary is approaching fast, I have decided to ask my favourite brands to sponsor a few giveaways for my blog readers.



Capricorn Somerset Goat's Cheese has been my discovery of the year.
It is a versatile cheese that could be savoured as it is, with a selection of crackers and oatcakes, grapes and figs, or enjoyed in many cooked dishes.

To tantalise your tastebuds, I'm going to showcase a few mouthwatering photos.

One of my most favourite blogs, London Unattached, has several wonderful recipes that use Capricorn cheese. If you are a foodie, Fiona's blog is a must.

I love the idea of making these lush pumpkin jam and goat's cheese tarts, they are so full of flavours and textures.




Or would you like to try these delicious crispy golden filo parcels?



This recipe has been suggested by lovely Cheryl from Madhouse Family Reviews (another of my favourite blogs), you can find the recipe on her blog among several other dishes, using Capricorn.

I have also participated in the Capricorn Challenge with my own ideas and recipes.
If you fancy trying Goat's cheese, baked in shortcrust pastry, my recipe can be found here.



More suggestions from me, offering a choice of pirozhki and arancini could be found here.

All of the recipes above use pastry, I think goat's cheese and pastry are made for each other, but of course, you can do any other dishes with the cheese like summer salads and risottos. Search for Capricorn Challenge on Google, you will be surprised how many wonderful dishes you will find.

Now how would you like to win a month's supply of Capricorn Somerset Goats Cheese (8 vouchers)?
