Deep Fried Goats’ Cheese with Orange Blossom Honey

Immensely proud about Spain’s famous produce, craft producers, regional diversity and culinary heritage, José Pizarro has to take a lot of credit for putting his country’s food firmly on the map.


  1. Pour enough olive oil into a frying pan so that it comes 1cm up the sides of the pan. Heat the pan until the oil starts to shimmer.
  2. Pat the cheese rounds in flour on both sides so that they are well covered, then dunk them in the egg mixture. Pop them into the frying pan two at a time and fry over a high heat for 1 minute – turning over the cheese halfway through – until a golden-brown crust forms. If the cheese is completely covered by the oil, the rounds will only need to cook for 30 seconds. Place the cheese on kitchen paper.
  3. Arrange the cheese rounds on a flat plate and drizzle over the honey in a zig-zag pattern.
