Method

 
Preheat the oven to 210°C.

Place butter and water in a pot over a medium heat, bring to a simmer, and stir until butter has dissolved. Add flour and salt; stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes away from the sides of the pot and forms a ball.

Remove the pot from the stove and place mixture in a bowl. Using an electric hand-held beater, beat until cool. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, until the mixture is smooth and shiny. Add the goat's cheese and paprika to the mixture, sitr to combine.

Place tablespoons of mixture onto a lined baking tray, 3cm apart. Bake for 10 min, and then reduce heat to 190°C and bake for an additional 20 min.

Remove, place on a rack. When cool enough to handle, pierce base of puff with a toothpick to release steam.

To Serve:

Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh thyme.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
