  • A little effort

These goat's cheese and chilli jam parcels are easy to make but look really impressive. The perfect wait to get your cheese fix



  • individual goat’s cheese with rind 2 (about 100g each) 
  • chilli jam 2 tbsp
  • flat-leaf parsley finely chopped to make 1 tbsp
  • basil finely chopped to make 1 tbsp 
  • puff pastry 1 sheet 
  • egg 1, beaten
  • green salad to serve 


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cut the cheeses through the middle horizontally to make 4 rounds, spoon 1 tbsp chilli jam onto 2, and add the herbs. Replace the tops of the cheeses.

  • Step 2

    Put both cheese sandwiches onto the rolled-out pastry sheet 1cm in from the edge of the rounds and cut around leaving a 1cm border around each of them. Cut out 2 more circles double the size of the first. Brush the pastry around each cheese with egg, then add the second larger circles, pressing around both cheeses, crimping the edges. Use a knife to score the top in a criss-cross pattern taking care not to cut through to the cheese, brush the tops with more egg then bake on a baking tray for 30 minutes until golden and puffed. Serve with a sharply dressed green salad.
