Chorizo, Goat Cheese and Leeks pair really well together.
The fireiness from the rustic sausage is toned down by the creamy, tangy goat cheese.
Add to that soft oniony leeks and you have a mix made in heaven.
I often serve up puff pastry parcels as a starter depending on what I have in the kitchen at the time, and as this recipe doesn't require large quantities it's a great way to use up those bits and pieces that you don't want to throw away.
The fillings vary for my guests but more often than not it's this version that makes its way onto the menu. It's kind of like my French version of a Cornish Pasty.
I serve it with young salad leaves and ripe slices of tomato that work so well with all of the ingredients especially with a simple balsamic vinaigrette
Almost always I use store bought puff pastry which I find lighter than short crust.
I don't have a lot of time to make my own puff pastry but as I made this recipe (and the photos) during winter I wanted more of a heartier and filling dish so I used home-made rough puff. If anyone wants the recipe email me and i'll send it to you.
