Strawberry balsamic goats cheese bruschetta

This is a thing of beauty. Make sure to get decent Italian style bread, made from durum wheat if possible, and in Lostwithiel we have a little market where I get my cheese from, locally made. And try and get in-season strawberries, nothing beats the aroma of fresh strawberries that haven't been forced and shipped a thousand miles.
I'm fond of this chef, I don't usually have to change anything.

This is perfect summer starters or snacks, with a side of Pimms and good company. Which is why I'm craving it in the middle of winter.

Ingredients

Original recipe makes 12 slices
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
12 slices Italian bread
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound strawberries, washed and diced
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving
1 cup goat cheese, room temperature
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Prep: 15 mins
Ready in: 25 mins

Method
Heat vinegar in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Simmer until reduced by about half, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Prepare a grill for high heat. Place bread slices on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Combine strawberries and thyme in a small bowl and set aside.
Grill bread on the preheated grill until browned, about 3 minutes per side.
Spread goat cheese on toasted bread. Add black pepper, salt, and reduced vinegar to the strawberry mixture. Spoon over the goat cheese topped bruschetta. Garnish with additional thyme.
