Moving The Cheese From Starter Plate To Dessert Tray
several really nice dessert recipes here using goat cheese

Both of these links contain some amazing cheese dessert recipes that I've been working my way through.

Beyond all the delicious savory uses and cheese tasting platters is the idea of serving dessert cheese. The best of savory & sweet!

I'm always on the look out for new ideas :)

    I have made these goat cheese custards many times - they are perfect for spring and always a big hit!

      I'm a fan of David Lebovitz recipes as well, thank you for the quick link.

    2. IMVHO, the cheese tray should not be used as a meal starter but after the main as a dessert or just before dessert. Cheese has a lot of fat, no surprise here, and if the first thing in the meal can fill you up very quickly, thus the rest of the meal may be less enticing than it would have been.

        Agreed. I've never seen a cheese plate offered as a first course anywhere outside the US, and even here, where I live (Boston) it's virtually always served after the main. I have seen reports on the board that this is not true in much of the US.
