I LOVE goat cheese, and I love putting it in just about everything! In this savory galette, the combination of goat cheese, roasted carrots and parsnips, and caramelized shallots make this appetizer irresistible!

In fact, I’ve teamed up with members of Holland House’s #HHCookingWineCo to create a custom holiday full-course meal plan and this appetizer is one of five recipes on the menu.

Each recipe is designed to be quick and easy to prepare to ensure the holidays stay stress-free (at least in the kitchen anyway). Links to my fellow #HHCookingWineCo member recipes are listed at the end of this post. I want to thank Holland House Cooking Wines for bringing all five of us together.

This Carrot and Parsnip Galette packs a lot of flavors! This is due to the layering of flavors – roasted carrots and parsnips, herbed goat cheese, honey, and caramelized shallots that have been cooked in Holland House Sherry Cooking Wine. The Holland House Sherry Cooking Wines adds hints of nuts and caramel, which elevate the flavor of the caramelized shallots.

I love using Holland House Cooking Wines in my recipes because they give a flavor boost to any dish. I get so many compliments on my Carrot and Parsnip Galette recipe, and I have to credit Holland House Sherry Cooking Wine.
