Goat Cheese à la SanLucar

Goat Cheese à la SanLucar

Have you ever combined goat cheese with peach? This is a combo that never would have occurred to us. But fortunately we have Star Chef Rolf Straubinger on our side! And he recently created a salad for his guests at Burg Staufeneck. And since he knows the ins and outs of flavour combinations, he knew very well that both ingredients go together marvellously. And he’s now put all this on a green salad with sunflower seeds and green asparagus. Delicious! Just hearing this made our mouths water. Yours too? OK – grab your cooking spoon and off you go. Because as always, we were able to talk him into giving us the recipe. Bon Appetit!
