Jamie’s Goat Cheese Crostini :

This incredibly simple recipe allows the quality of each of its 6 ingredients to shine through.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Slice 10 rounds off the baguette to make Crostini. Drizzle with olive oil and bake on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes until slightly toasty.
  2. Meanwhile, Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat.
  3. Toast the pine nuts in the pan, stirring, for approximately 5 minutes, until fragrant. (Don’t forget to take out the bread!)
  4. Add the sliced roasted peppers to the pan and turn heat to medium.
  5. Once warmed, drizzle with Campari vinegar (approximately 1 tbs. or a couple of quick turns around the pan with a thumb partially covering the spout).
  6. Continue to cook, allowing the vinegar to absorb into the mixture and caramelize, stirring occasionally.
  7. Coat each crostini with 1 tbs. or more of goat cheese. Top with the pepper mixture.
  8. Bake the crostini at 350 for approximately 5 minutes until cheese is slightly melted and serve.

Delice de Bourgogne with Amarena Wild Cherries:

A cheese course is a classic dessert. Delice is a triple crème cheese from France that is rich and creamy, perfect for ending a meal, plus it’s just the thing for pairing with champagne. For our Valentine’s Day catalog, we are created a dessert by combining Delice de Bourgogne with Amarena Wild Cherries.

To serve simply cut a wedge of Delice de Bourgogne and top with a generous spoonful of the wild cherries with their sauce. Smear onto crusty bread or simply enjoy with a spoon, crackers optional. And don’t forget the bubbly!
