How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 400*F. Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients together and set aside.
- Cut bread into 8 circles, using biscuit/cookie cutter. Arrange the bread circles on a baking sheet and lightly brush with butter. Turn the slices over and repeat on the other side. Bake for about 6 minutes, turning the baking sheet around in the oven halfway through the baking time to ensure even browning. Bake until the croutons are lightly browned.
- Neatly spread goat cheese on each crouton then place back in oven to slightly warm the goat cheese, about 2-3 minutes.
- Using a mandolin or a very sharp knife, thinly slice the persimmons. Set aside.
- To serve: Place a small bundle of frisee on each plate. Fan out persimmon slices next to the frisee. Top with warm goat cheese croutons and drizzle with orange vinaigrette. Garnish with hazelnuts and chives.
