Fabulous Free Recipe @ President Emmental

24 June 2010

Leek & Bacon Tart PlayPennies recently had the pleasure of a recipe and tasting session with President's range of Emmental cheeses and they gave us some fabulous free recipes to share with everyone. The cheese is really good value for money and has a rather nutty taste and a below average fat content too!

So, without further waffle, here is the lush recipe I tried out last night. Sadly, water was spilled onto my pastry due to my enthusiastic waving around of a rolling pin so my puff didn't poof, but it still tasted yummy!
