For those who have never had it, the closest cousin to goat cheese is feta. It's no surprise that they are commonly combined with similar foods, such as figs, roasted beets, and caramelized onions, because it brings out the best qualities in them both. The primary difference between them is that where feta is salty and crumbly, goat cheese tends to be soft and slightly tangy. Feta prefers to stand out, having a harder texture and sharper flavor, while goat cheese is milder and lends a creaminess to every dish its in. Go gourmet in your kitchen this week with one of these elegant goat cheese recipes and taste the deliciousness for yourself!
