Marinated goat cheese
1/4 cup best-quality olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, chopped
finely grated zest of half a lemon
8-ounce log of fresh goat cheese
Fleur de sel or Maldon salt
Cracked black pepper
Place the olive oil in a small pan with the thyme and oregano, and heat it gently over low heat until it just starts to bubble gently. Remove from heat, add the lemon zest and let the herbs and lemon infuse the oil for 15 or 20 minutes.
Place the goat cheese on a dish. Use a spoon to make a depression in the top of the log that will catch the oil. Pour the oil and over the cheese, and sprinkle salt and cracked pepper to taste. Marinate for at least an hour, spooning the oil over the cheese to coat it now and then. Serve with toasted baguette rounds.
