Franche-Comte specialty cuisine, Comte Cheese Puff pastry recipe

Preparation Steps:

1. Cut the pastry sheet into 6 rectangles.

2. Cut 6 sticks of comte cheese, roll them in the slices of ham, then in the rectangle of pastry.

3. Brush the edges with the egg yolk. Press the edges firmly to seal the pastry, then brush the top with the rest of egg yolk.

4. Bake in a warm oven for 20 minutes.


Wine Pairing Tips: A very versatile dish, the ham and Comté pastry will work with a wide range of Jura whites, but will also pair quite nicely with a red Poulsard. Combining the refreshing, light body of a white wine with bright red berry aromas, Poulsard is great with ham and other cured meats, similar to a Beaujolais for example.
