Original recipe: Pan-fried Foie Gras and sautéed apples with orgeat syrup
To celebrate Valentine's Day, we suggest Foie Gras! It's not original since it's one of the most popular products for holiday meals. With apples? This is just as classic, but what is a little less so is the idea of Chef Emmanuel Stemper to add a few drops of orgeat syrup!

Daring food and wine pairing: Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg
The Grand Cru Schlossberg was the first place named "Grand Cru" in Alsace. It extends over a terraced hillside, facing south, overlooking Kientzheim and Kaysersberg. Its reputation is due to its light and draining soils, as well as to its subsoil formed of granitic rocks in which the vines plunge their roots. The Rieslings produced here reflect this geology through their finesse and minerality.
Our Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg has a brilliant pale gold colour. The nose, with the restraint of its youth, opens with notes of fresh fruit, notably peach and mirabelle plum. One also appreciates a greedy note reminiscent of marzipan. The palate is ample and lively, built on the grainy acidity typical of the terroir. The structure is tense but the aroma is tender. One thinks of brioche, while the fruitiness is based on candied citrus peel.
Bon appétit and good tasting!
