Just got this recipe from a wonderful mentor and friend...Hubby and I had some with slices of baguette from Ace Bakery and a glass (or two) of Chardonnay. Truly wonderful!
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. peppercorns
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. dried rosemary
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 bay leaf
1/3 cup kalamata olives
1 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 oz. semi-soft goat cheese, cut into 4-8 pieces
Pulse all ingredients except goat cheese in a food processor just until spices are ground and mixture comes together. Pour over goat cheese. Let stand a few hours or overnight.
