Emmental cheese parcels served with basil pesto Recipe

  • 1

    Cut the cheese into batons. Cut the brick pastry sheets into 4 strips. Wrap each baton of cheese in a piece of brick pastry then cook under the grill, turning occasionally to ensure that each side of pastry is cooked and crispy.
    Make the pesto by blending the basil leaves, the peeled garlic, the pine nuts, olive oil and parmesan. Blitz in a blender or crush with a pestle and mortar.
