The Creation by the hosts

The menu of the two culinary experts, which is tailored to Krug champagne, is aromatic and classic at the same time. It consists of the main protagonist, “DAS Fondue” – made from Gruyère, Freiburg Vacherin and Valais raclette – as well as mimolette, smoked paprika powder and jalapeños.

With his creation, Beeler draws on 30 years of experience with the best artisanal cheeses in combination with Nieder’s different flavours. Both recommend traditional wood-fired bread or potatoes and, for the Iberian touch, Pata Negra, salami with truffles, morcon de chorizo and olives as a side dish.
