  • 1 sourdough baguette
  • Olive oil spray
  • 120g goat's cheese
  • 8 chives, snipped into small rounds
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to garnish (optional)


Preheat oven to 180°C. Slice baguette into thin slices on the diagonal. Place bread slices on two baking trays and cook for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Cool on wire racks.

Just before serving, spread each toast with a teaspoon of goats cheese and sprinkle with chives. A little bit of olive oil drizzled over the top looks great too.

Serve with your favourite champagne cocktail.


  • The toasts can be made several days in advance and stored in an airtight container.
  • I used goat's cheese and chives, but use your favourite-triple cream brie, a blue with thin slices of pear or a sharp vintage cheddar with quince paste.
