au chèvre (recette)

    "feuilles de brick au chèvre" goat fritters? goat pastries?
    I assume that this is filled with goat cheese rather than goat meat. You need to spell that out in English. Neither pastries nor fritters are right: you will need to coin something - "goat cheese parcels"?

    The phrase was used in a statement made by a French television presenter of programs relating to food and cooking. The full text is:

    Retrouvez quelques unes de mes recettes sur Let's Cook ! Ce soir, feuilles de brick au chèvre, pour un apéritif léger !

    chèvre is most likely goat cheese here - for a light starter, goat meat isn't normally on the menu).

    Absolutely. Furthermore it cannot be refering to meat because of au => it means chèvre is masculine in this sentence thus one is talking about the cheese indeed. If it was refering to the meat it would be à la chèvre.

    The masculine/feminine thing is an obvious tipoff. But I honestly didn't even notice it, since the meaning of "cheese" just makes more sense semantically!

    The dictionary page translates 'chèvre' as goat (nf). The expression 'fromage de chèvre' is used to refer to goat cheese. This seems to be a case of a dictionary needing catch up with modern idiom. The instructions support the translation of 'chèvre' (nm) as 'goat cheese'.
