Top Review by Chef Jean
This is the easiest cheese fondue I've ever made! Simple and satisfying. The herbs really make this dish, and you can easily adjust the herbs to your liking( I like more thyme less tarragon). Made for ZWT 7.
- 2 lbs fingerling potatoes (30 to 40, You may substitute other small potatoes.)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces soft goat cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup fat-free buttermilk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1 bunch chives, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1 bunch chervil, for garnish
