Marinated French Goat’s Cheese Mini Log…

Marinated French Goat’s Cheese Mini Log anyone?

Preparation time: 20 minutes

No cooking time

Marinating time 1 hour – 1 week+

Fills 2x300ml jars


  • 4x 200g French goat’s cheese mini log (Make sure they are firm but still young)
  • 4 large dried or fresh red chillies
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp pink pepper corns
  • Rind of 1 lemon removed with a peeler
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • 400mls Hazelnut oil
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Start by slicing each mini log into 4 slices and placing 8 slices into each jar.
  2. Place all the ingredients for the marinade into a saucepan and pour over the oil.
  3. Heat to about 60oC and turn off the heat.
  4. Leave to cool completely before pouring over the sliced French goat’s cheese mini log.
  5. Evenly distribute the herbs and chillies between the jars.
  6. Seal and place into the fridge for up to a week.

To serve :

  • Take the cheese out of the infused oil (which may have solidified but don’t worry) and serve with some grilled bread, a few olives and some marinated peppers.
  • You can also place the cheese on some lovely crusty bread and toast it for a really interesting twist on cheese on toast.

French goat’s cheese mini log is available from all good supermarkets.
