Refrigerate this marinated cheese for at least one week for flavours to absorb. Serve with crackers, pita crisps or mini pita breads. Reserve the flavoured oil in the refrigerator to use as an ingredient in a favourite dressing. You can use goat cheese in savoury recipes that call for a soft cheese, such as cream cheese or ricotta. It's great in sauces or fondue.
