I previously stated I do not want to see goat cheese on my plate. Well I was at a restaurant this weekend and they brought out an amuse bouche for everyone.

It was fried goat cheese with pesto. Now I will admit it was the best goat cheese I have had it was the least goat tasting. And the pesto was delicious. But about 10 minutes after I finished it I was still tasting the goat.

Once again it reaffirms my dislike of the cheese. I will taste it again in another year. I can only hope the goat cheese fad will go away.

Hmmm I love goat cheese lol. And because of it's smaller molecules goat cheese/milk is easier to digest, so lactose intolerant people can usually handle it. I've read that even calves do better on goats milk than mothers milk. I, for one, do not hope the fad passes :)

I don't think a 40 year practice of doing something would be a fad.

I've seen goat cheese listed in recipes since the early 70's, so after 40 years of goat cheese inclusion into recipes, I seriously doubt that it's going to stop being popular.

I tried it recently for the first time, and it was ok, but not anything that stands out in my memory of foods I love.

Goat cheese isn't going away, just like sun-dried tomatoes haven't gone away. They just don't show up in recipes after a while.

I think goat cheese has been used in Mediterranean cuisine for much longer than 40 years, probably hundreds of years or more. Popularity of EU recipes in the US probably ensures that goat cheese will be with us forever.

I've never used "Sun Dried Tomatoes". I have a dehydrator that I use almost constantly during harvest months. I kept expanding it until I now have 15 trays for it. The thing is almost as tall as I am. I love the thing. It's as easy as can be and I freeze the results. I think they would last forever in the freezer.

I wait for veggies to be on sale and buy enough to fill the dehydrator twice.

Sun dried tomatoes are usually sold packed in olive oil and often with additional spices. However they are also available dehydrated. Most recipes I've seen or cooked use the packed in olive oil version.

My youngest son made the best butter spread using sun dried tomatoes and some spices. I loved it, it was addictive, you kept wanting more. But sad to say he has lost the recipe. He has looked on the internet but can't find the right one. Bummer.

I have yet to find a "sun dried tomato" that was edible. I think they are so gross. I love tomatoes, but not them. Fortunately I am not a person who tries to follow the latest trend in food. Serving veggies that I can't even get my fork into, is another one I refuse to go with. Cook my food so I can eat it and get my fork into. I know. I am getting old and cranky.
