WHAT IT IS: Classic Scottish oatcakes.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: They taste homemade: simple, wholesome goodness that is simultaneously indulgent and exciting.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The back-to-old-fashioned-goodness quality of these oatcakes makes you realize that they have been missing from your life.

Easy Hors D’Oeuvre: Goat Cheese Oatcakes

You can serve this tasty recipe at brunch, as an hors d’oeuvre, as a snack with tea, or as the cheese course.


  • 8-ounce log fresh goat cheese
  • 16 oatcakes
  • Fig vinegar
  • Lavender honey or orange blossom honey
  • Fresh or dried figs for garnish


  1. Divide goat cheese into 16 slices. Top each oatcake with a slice.
  2. Drizzle with fig vinegar and honey.
  3. Garnish with a halved fig.


Plain goat cheese is called for, but you can add more spice to this recipe with a peppered goat cheese log. Cheese available from iGourmet.

The company also makes corncakes. They’re good, but they don’t sing the same siren song as the oatcakes.
