#GBBO Week 6: Pastry


Pastry Week

Week 6 on the Great British Bake Off brings us pastry week. We thought we would make lovely pesto goats cheese filo parcels, a delicious combination of crisp pastry, smooth goats cheese and a touch of pesto. These are easy to make and taste delicious either as a snack or to serve as a dinner party appetiser.



  • 8 sheets filo pastry
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 110g goats cheese
  • 4 tbsp pesto


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C.
  2. Take one sheet of pastry and cut it into 6 square pieces. Brush 3 of them lightly with oil and put the other 3 on top at an angle. Brush them again with oil and leave to one side. Repeat with the remaining sheets of pastry.
  3. Divide the piece of cheese into 12. Put a piece of cheese in the middle of each pastry stack. Put 1tsp of pesto on top of each one, then carefully scrunch the pastry together to form a bundle. Brush lightly with oil on the outside to help it hold together then transfer to a baking sheet.
  4. Bake the pastry parcels in the oven for approx 10 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Serve warm.

Stretch at your Desk!

Tight neck and shoulder muscles and stiff legs are very common when sitting at a desk all day.
