Honey Goat Cheese Recipe with Port-Infused Figs

Goat cheese is already pretty light and airy but running it through a whipping siphon just turns it into creamy clouds. I combine it with honey for extra flavor and serve it with port-infused figs. If you don't have a whipping siphon, you can whip the goat cheese in a food processor and infuse the figs in the refrigerator for a few days.

I serve the goat cheese on small, circular flatbreads for this recipe, that way I can put a dollop of goat cheese on each one and it makes it a lot easier to serve. Don't forget the leftover port from infusing the figs, it will have a great flavor and is excellent in cocktails or sauces.
