Goats Cheese with Red Onion and Chilli Marmalade

Oooh yummy yum yum - I love goats cheese! I made a red onion and chilli marmalade to serve with it which turned out to be really good.

This makes a really nice starter and would be great at Christmas. It's also very easy to make too.

To serve 2 you will need:
1 glug of olive oil
2 red onions - sliced thinly
half of a medium heat red chilli - chopped finely and seeds removed
1 star anise
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
100ml of red wine

2 rounds of goats cheese

Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan and add the onion and the chilli.
Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes over a low heat. You don't want the onions to brown very much.

Now add the star anise, sugar and red wine vinegar. Cook for a bit and then add the red wine.
Cook over a low heat for a good while (30 minutes plus) until you're happy with the consistency and it is all nice and glossy. Remove the star anise before serving.

I served mine with the goats cheese while it was still warm.

Pop two rounds of goats cheese under the grill for about 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them and remove just before they start to melt.
I sprinkle a little brown sugar on top of each cheese and finish with a cooks blowtorch.

Just gives me an excuse to get that gadget out - I love it!

BBC Good Food Show with Miele

Well what a fantastic time we all had at the BBC Good Food Show on Saturday.
I was very kindly invited to go along again, courtesy of Miele (who are big sponsors of the show) by Lauren and Cherry from Miele's PR company 'Forever Better'.

From left to right the other foodie people that were there:
Bronwin from Practically Daily, Cara from Gourmet Chick and Kits and her friend from The Cooking Forum. I'm on the far right.

We also got to join in the Miele Cookery Experience on stage cooking with Martin Blunos. It was fantastic, Martin cooked a baked scallop dish and we all followed him. I will post the recipe separately. The scallops were cooked in a rather fancy Miele oven - we all wanted one!
