Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
I love using goat cheese in recipes to thicken sauces. It's reliable and helps reduce the amount of fat and flour required as for a roux.
Because of the savory flavor of goat cheese it won't work for every recipe. In many recipes I look for a cheese with as little flavor as possible. Another ingredient that adds creaminess is yogurt cheese.
