Reblochon cheese spring rolls, sweet-and-sour sauce and lettuce recipe
The cheese name Reblochon comes from the French verb "Reblocher" which means "to squeeze the udder a second time" in local Savoy patois. That was initially a cheeky tax fraud! The second yield was low in milk but rich in cream, giving its rich flavour to the cheese and keeping money away from the taxman.
• 1 egg yolk
• 1 Reblochon cheese
• 4 sheets brick pastry
• 8 tbsp acacia honey
• 3 tbsp white vinegar
• 1 tbsp soy sauce
• 3 drops chilli sauce
• 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
• 2 lettuces
Spring rolls preparation:
Cut each sheet of brick pastry into 3 similar triangles, glaze them with the yolk, add the Reblochon cheese and roll them.
Mix the honey, vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and chilli sauce. Fry the Reblochon-cheese spring rolls in groundnut oil in a non-stick pan, dry them with a tea towel. Wash the lettuce. Roll in a leaf of lettuce and dip in the sweet-and-sour sauce to enjoy.
