    St Chevrier Ash and Leek Tartlets

    Waitrose Select St Chevrier Ash Goat's Cheese comes from the Berry region of France. It has a creamy texture and a fresh, clean flavour. The cheese is covered in edible powdered ash that gives it an attractive appearance. In this recipe, the flavour of the cheese is enhanced by the mild sweetness of leeks.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 55 minutes 55 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 375g pack Saxby's Fresh Ready-Rolled Puff Pastry
    • 50g butter
    • 400g leeks, trimmed and thinly sliced
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 small egg, beaten
    • 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
    • 120g Waitrose Select St Chevrier Ash Goat's Cheese


    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Unroll the pastry on a floured surface, and cut in half lengthways, then cut each half into three squares. Use the tip of a sharp knife to score each square about 1cm from the edges and create a frame.
    2. Transfer to a large greased baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes or until it is just beginning to colour and is well risen. Remove and discard the tops of the pastry centres - if necessary use a knife to help flip these off.
    3. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the leeks and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until completely softened. Allow to cool slightly. Season and beat in the egg and oregano. Divide the mixture between the pastry cases, spreading it to fill them completely.
    4. Cut the cheese into small chunks and scatter over the top of each tartlet. Return to the oven for 8-10 minutes and bake until golden and heated through. Serve with Waitrose Solo Lamb's Lettuce lightly dressed with olive oil.

    Cook's tips

    If the pastry becomes very soft while working with it, chill the cases for 10 minutes before baking to ensure they rise well.
