Bacon, Pumpkin And Goats Cheese Soup


A perk from being a Dairy Judge (am I overdoing it yet?) is taking home your weight in prize winning cheese, ice cream and yoghurt! I brought home the most amazing ashed goats cheese from Ringwould Dairy. It didn't travel well once removed from its packaging, thus no pic, but the flavour didn't fail! Needed a quick lunch on Saturday, had some sensational speck and of course, the cheese, so this was a natural progression, and it was truly amazing! Now in the absence of Ringwould ashed goats cheese, please replace with a creamy, mild goats cheese, as opposed to a stronger more astringent variety.
