Warm Goat Cheese & Peach Tartine – Open Face, Insert Summer

I usually don’t mention the time of year during
these videos, since I have no way of knowing when someone will actually
view them, but when it came to this goat cheese and peach tartine, I couldn’t
help myself. For me, this is summer on a slice of bread. My apologies to those of you reading/watching this in February.

August is national goat cheese month (no, I don’t know who
decides these things), and what better way to enjoy chèvre than by topping it
with sweet, ripe, impossibly juicy peach slices? Mix in a little thyme and
black pepper to keep things interesting, and you’re looking at a very special
treat. Just make sure to use stale bread.

As I bemoaned in the clip, I used a fresh loaf, which while
perfectly delicious, wasn’t perfect. Staler bread would have produced a
crunchier stage for our co-stars, as there’s more then enough moisture
provided by the cheese and fruit.

By the way, if you don’t have any day-old bread, but still
want to enjoy this post haste, simply toss the toasted, olive-oiled slices into
a 350 F. oven for a few minutes, to dry out and crisp up before you top with
the cheese. Either way, you’re in for a significantly tasty summer treat. I hope
you give this a try soon (while it’s still summer!). Enjoy!

1 thick slice French bread, sourdough or not
