Raymond Blanc’s Chicory And Roquefort Salad


While checking for what’s new on the BBC Good Food channel on YouTube, I came across Raymond Blanc’s Chicory Walnut Roquefort Salad.

Warm goat’s cheese salad with an apple vinaigrette


One of my favourite cheeses, after a nice mature cheddar, is chèvre – better known as goat cheese. Is has a lovely sharp taste yet soft and creamy. I particularly love it sliced, on toast, along with walnuts and drizzled in honey. Wonderful. Goat cheese is also great in salads and in this recipe, it’s a […]
