Makes about 1 1/4 cups or 6 servings.
8 ounces fresh goat cheese
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream, more if needed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive
2 tablespoons dry white wine
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
Good crackers or slices of walnut bread
About 1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 celery heart, cut into sticks
Put goat cheese, whipping cream, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and wine in a food processor (or mix in a bowl with a wooden spoon). Pulse just to blend.
Mixture should be spreadable - if it's too thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoons more cream and pulse again. Season with salt and pepper, pulse again, and taste, adjusting seasoning as necessary.
Add 2 teaspoons lemon zest. Pulse once more to blend.
Line a small round bowl or cup and fill with cheese mixture.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes and
up to 24 hours. Drizzle olive oil over top.
Arrange crackers or bread slices, tomatoes and celery around cheese and let guests serve themselves.
