Verrine of Goat Cheese and Fruit

Verrine of Goat Cheese and Fruit

Serves 8

 

Verrines are all the rage in Paris these days. Read it as "terrine with a twist." In the windows of Fauchon, Paris's specialty food shop, you'll find small glasses with all kinds of treats inside. I loved a gorgeous one filled with layers of goat cheese and lots of berries. Serve with a flute of Prosecco or a sweet Moscato.

 
  • 8 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 pint blueberries, picked over for stems
  • 8 sprigs fresh mint, for garnish
  • Tea biscuits or sweet crackers for serving

Place the cheese and honey in a medium-size bowl and beat with a hand mixer into a fluffy mixture. Spoon a layer of cheese into 8 small wine or cocktail glasses or large shot glasses, top with a berry layer, then finish with a cheese layer. Top each glass with a mint sprig. Serve with tea biscuits.
