Jim German turns to local producer Monteillet Fromagerie for fantastic goat and sheep cheeses. While most of Monteillet's French-style cheeses are best on their own, German likes to spread its fresh, creamy goat cheese on toast and top it with pickled peppers, like Mama Lil's sweet hot peppers (mamalils.com). Bruschetta and Crostini More Cheese Dishes

  • Spread each toast with goat cheese and top with the peppers. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with the chives and salt and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Goat cheese has a natural affinity for Sauvignon Blanc; they share a kind of herbal freshness that's lively and delicious. Walla Walla, though primarily known for red wines, is also a source for terrific whites. Try a crisp Walla Walla Sauvignon Blanc or a lemon-inflected blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle.
