2 tbsp. Herbs de Provence
8 cloves garlic, peeled and thinkly sliced
1 tsp. pepper flakes
1 tbsp. cracked peppercorns

Begin layering one third of crumbled chevre, then one third each: Herbs de Provence, garlic slices, pepper flakes and cracked peppercorns. Continue with three layers or until all ingredients are utilized. Pour oil to just below surface level.
