Appleissimo by star chef Straubinger!

What could get you through gray and wet cold days better than sweet-crispy apples and juicy oranges? Especially when these delicious ingredients are combined with delightful Gorgonzola cheese and whole thing becomes a very special delicacy. This autumn feast was invented by our friend, star chef Rolf Straubinger. And he’s very enthusiastic about our crispy-sweet Opal®. Because it tastes like apples used to taste – intensely flavorful, fruity-sweet and crispy when bitten into. This delicacy – which by the way is only available here – is grown on sunny Lake Constance and in Styria. It thrives particularly well on lightly sloping terrain and in the fertile soil.
So, off to the kitchen you go with our delicious Apple-Orange Salad with Gorgonzola.
