From epicurious.com. We have made this for the holidays every year since I found it online. It is so good (if you love goat cheese, like I do). Parts of this recipe can be done one day ahead (they are indicated below). Also, don't forget to buy and cut-up the bread a day or two in advance so it has time to get dry and hard(ish).
