Better late than never: Pi Day Goat Cheese

March 17, 2011

Many circles to celebrate pi day

Here’s another dish I made for the Pi day party.

Pi Day Goat Cheese Rounds

  • 1  log soft goat cheese (8 ounces)
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • Black pepper
  • Paprika (smoked paprika is wonderful if you can get it)
  • Round crackers

Slice the goat cheese and arrange on a plate.  Slice the pepper into thin strips and arrange the strips to make a pi symbol on each cheese round.  Slice olives crosswise to make circles and arranges the olives on the plate.  Cut the garlic cloves in slices.  Heat the olive oil in a small pan over low heat.  Add garlic and cumin and continue to cook, stirring, until the garlic is soft and the cumin is fragrant.  Be careful not to let the garlic burn.  Drizzle the oil over the cheese on the serving plate.  Squeeze the lemon wedge, sprinkling juice over all the cheese rounds.  Season with freshly ground black pepper.  Garnish with paprika. Serve with round crackers.
