Okay, I typically tell you about my successes. However, I felt I should tell you about one woeful attempt I just had. At the market I got some wonderful, delicious super ripe raspberries. And in the fridge I had some wonderful soft, scrumptious goat cheese. I love, I mean LOVE LOVE a good sweet /savory pair. There is something in the Yin and Yang of it that just makes me happy. In my minds eye, the sweet ripe raspberries would pair great with the salty tangy cheese. Sure to be a next party success. I tried it. While it was a pretty combo, it was terrible. The raspberries accentuated the tart flavor of the goat cheese (and not in a good way). All the sweetness of the raspberry got lost. It was a sad, sad affair. I do not recommend it folks.
That said, tomorrow I am going to try a super ripe strawberry and maybe a little sliver of apple. I plug on!!.
