Goat Cheese Marinated in Vanilla with Raspberries
Cut goat cheese into 1.5cm x 1.5cm cubes and place in a shallow bowl together with blackberries or raspberries. Add olive oil, vanilla oil (save 20 cc for presentation), fresh thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. Let marinate for 1 hour.
After marinating, arrange goat cheese with blackberries/raspberries on bamboo sticks alternating between berries and cheese (two per person).
Decorate with oregano leaves and fresh time and lightly sprinkle with remaining vanilla oil.
Vanilla Oil Preparation
Slice open each bean and scrape softly, adding scrapings to the vegetable oil. Heat oil with vanilla scrapings and bean in a pan on low heat (ideally, raise the temperature and then remove pan so the vanilla does not burn. Repeat 5 times) for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and store vanilla oil in airtight jar.
