Fingerling Potatoes and Goat Cheese Fondue


If fingerling potatoes are unavailable, you may substitute other small potatoes such as red bliss.


  • 2 pounds fingerling potatoes (30 to 40)

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 8 ounces soft goat cheese, room temperature

  • 1 cup nonfat buttermilk

  • ½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 1 bunch chives, finely chopped

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme leaves

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • Chervil, for garnish


  1. Place fingerling potatoes and salt in a large saucepan with enough cold water to cover generously. Place over high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat, and drain potatoes in a colander. Transfer potatoes to a platter; set aside.

  2. Place goat cheese and buttermilk in a heat-proof bowl or the top of a double boiler, and place over a pan of simmering water. Warm mixture, stirring until it is very smooth, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in pepper, chives, thyme, tarragon, and parsley. Place in the bowl of a small fondue pot or in a warm serving bowl; serve immediately with fingerling potatoes garnished with chervil.
