  • ¼ cup pistachio nuts finely chopped
  • ¼ cup walnuts finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons thyme leaves finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary finely chopped
  • ¼ cup cranberries finely chopped
  • 100-150 g soft goats cheese keep cold – this makes it easier to work with

To serve

  • wafer crackers or crusty bread use gluten-free if required
  • 2-3 tablespoons liquid honey to drizzle (I used Airborne’s Beech Tree Honey)


  • Mix pistachio nuts, walnuts, thyme, rosemary and cranberries together.
  • Roll goats cheese log in nut, herb and cranberry mixture, ensuring it is well coated. Press down gently as you roll, to pack mixture on.
  • Just before serving, drizzle generously with honey.
  • Serve goats cheese log at room temperature with crackers and more honey, and any leftover nut, herb and cranberry mixture.


It’s so quick to make too – simply chop the nuts, fruit and herbs and roll the cheese in it. Be sure to drizzle lots of honey all over – goats cheese and honey go sooooo well together! Serve room temperature (very important for all cheeses!) with some nice crackers or crusty bread – yum. This also makes a great dessert if you’re after something a bit different.
