  1. One of my favorites! Thanks Emma.

  2. Love everything Emma and Neil prepared. Could I use other soft cheeses for this recipe? I’m not too keen on Goat Cheese.

      Hi Sheryl, thank you for the great feedback. You could use other soft cheeses for this recipe but I would suggest something with a strong flavour, for example Camembert or Roquefort.
      Hope that helps
