Very simple to do and not too expensive. Serve in a cocktail. Or in the middle of the dinning table to share.


  • 200 Grams Feta cheese
  • 3 Tarragon branches
  • 5 Pastry sheets cut in 4
  • Olive oil for basting the pastry sheets
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Step 2

    Step 3

    Tip on using the pastry sheets; 'feuilles de brick' . Open the pacquet a couple of hours ahead and wrap in a humid kitchen towel

    Step 4

    Soak the feta cheese in cold water to remove excess salt. Change the water 2-3 times every 1/2 hr. This really depends on how much salty the feta you are using. Mince the tarragon.

    Step 5

    With a fork reduce the cheese into crumbles

    Step 6

    Add the cut tarragon

    Step 7

    Back to the pastry sheets. Spray both sides of each sheet with olive oil. Or baste with a brush. Put them on top of each other.

    Step 8

    Fold the sheets in half

    Step 9

    Cut with scissors or knife

    Step 10

    Then fold each half to make quarters. Now they are ready to use.

    Step 11

    Step 12

    Step 13

    Step 14

    Cut the round sheets in 4 quarters. Spray with olive oil. Or baste with a brush. Roll garnish with the cheese-tarragon roll and put on the oven tray

    Step 15

    Make a cut of 1 cm in each for the vapour to escape otherwise the cheese will go out from the rolls. Bake in a preheated oven 180C for around 20 mins. Turn around the tray at half time.

    Step 16

    Here I have few bursted rolls. I must have put Lots of cheese or I rolled it very tight.

    Step 17

    Out of the oven, transfer the rolls on kitchen paper which will absorb the extra olive oil

    Step 18

    Serve. Either in a cocktail or in the middle of the table.
