List of ingredients
8 sheets of filo pastry
2 tsp aniseed
Little kitchen string
Oven baking brings out the aromas in this dish, offering an aromatic explosion of fresh aniseed flavors and the creamy Soumaintrain. The accompanying wine needs to stand up to this powerful profile. A Petit Chablis offers intense notes of citrus and stone fruit, and this delicious combination is further reinforced in the mouth. This vigorous wine brings structure to the pairing, its fruitiness enveloping the powerful punch of aniseed, rucola, and eggplant.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Cut out 15cm circles of filo pastry. Stack two circles one on top of the other, and place a large spoonful of Soumaintrain and a pinch of aniseed in the middle.
Make the cheese into a ball and shape the pastry into a pouch around it, tying it with a little kitchen string.
Place in the oven for three to four minutes until they are a light golden color.
Remove the string and serve hot with a little rucola and some eggplant caviar.
