Last fall Katie O'Donnell at Moxie had a goat cheese cheesecake that I thought was awesome. There's a tang that you get from the goat cheese that you recognize in a good way. It's a classic case of two things you wouldn't normally put together, but when you do they taste great. This is one of those desserts.
I've been looking for a good recipe to attempt the whole goat cheese thing. Armed with 10 ounces of goat cheese from MacKenzie Creamery I finally found a recipe that sounded interesting. February's Food and Wine actually has a recipe for Goat Cheese Cheesecake with Honeyed Cranberries. Put into the arsenal of Team USA for the Bocuse d'Or, Timothy Hollingsworth and Adina Guest share their creation.
I made it without the oranges because Regina's allergic to oranges. So when you look at the picture it's missing the orange zest mixture. Here is the link to the recipe.
