Gougere is a light, ring shaped pastry with a delicate cheese flavor. It is native to the Burgundy region of France, from which comes many fine wines.
Traditionally, gougere is served at wine tastings to clear the palate between samplings.
It is equally enjoyable as an hors d'oeuvre at a holiday, cocktail party or afternoon tea.
