lesley’s goat cheese brûlée

Put a spin on the classic crème brûlée textures, flavours and accompaniments by introducing a single new ingredient – goat cheese. When brûléed, goat cheese develops a sweet crust from the caramelised sugar and warmth that makes it sublimely spreadable. Try pairing with lesley stowe raincoast crisps® fig and olive, fig jam and a glass of cabernet sauvignon.
