Instructions
  1. To make Pesto, use roughly equal volumes of leaves to nuts and a mature farmhouse cheese, blitzed together with sufficient rapeseed oil to give the desired consistency. Seal in sterile jars or freeze in handy small batches.
  2. Blitz the nuts first, adding the grated cheese then roughly chopped leaves along with the oil. I have used both hazelnuts and macedemia – it is entirely your choice.
  3. To make the swirls, use homemade or bought rough puff pastry, rolled into oblong. Spread with a thin layer of pesto and scatter with farmhouse cheese. Slice finely and bake in a hot oven for 10 minutes.

I used Scotland The Bread flour for my pastry, with Supernature oil and St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese for my pesto.
