Marinated Clap Happy Goat Cheese

In All Adults Here, Porter Strick owns the “Clap Happy Cheese Goat Cheese” company, so we were BEYOND thrilled to have a legitimate excuse to share this marinated goat cheese recipe, as it is a staple appetizer at BBTP. 

Tangy goat cheese, marinated in salty, garlicky, and slightly-spicy olive oil is delicious on a table water cracker or spread over a toasted baguette. Fresh herbs are preferred for this recipe, however dried are fine in a pinch. 


  • 1 log of plain goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste 
  • 3 garlic cloves minced 
  • Sea salt
  • Squeeze of lemon juice 
  • 1 1/2 cup olive oil 


  • Slice the goat cheese log into quarter inch slices (PRO TIP: use unflavored floss to do this; it creates evenly cut slices) 
  • Combine the olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and chopped herbs, whisking until combined 
  • Pour olive oil mixture over the goat cheese slices on a serving plater, top with sea salt and a squeeze of lemon
