Cashel blue parcels with roasted pears!


The first day of our official summer tomorrow and it feels more like the first day of spring! I am not going to complain though because today consisted of a sunny stroll to school, the patio doors wide open, laughing children and friends for lunch. This was such a simple, colourful meal to throw together and the combination of flavours was delicious. Served with a couscous tabbouleh and some crusty bread, it was devoured.


To make six parcels you will need;

  • 175g cashel blue cheese
  • 50g crushed walnuts
  • 6 filo sheets
  • honey, to drizzle
  • 2tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Divide the cheese into six equal portions and place a piece into the middle of a sheet of filo pastry.

Sprinkle some walnuts over the cheese and drizzle with some honey.

Gather the corners of the pastry in and give a slight twist to gather together. Place on a baking tray.

Brush with some milk before placing in the hot oven for twenty minutes.

Serve with some pears that have been halved and baked in the oven with a drizzle of honey and a squeeze of lemon.


It’s been slightly hectic around here the last couple of weeks and my poor food blog has had to take a back seat. I need more hours in my day and more days in my week. My photography venture has really taken off and our events business is off to a flying start but without this little blog of mine I don’t think either of these would have even entered my realm. So nice to have a little corner of the web that is mine and thanks for sticking around lovely readers! xxx

      Chelle I literally threw a few things together but will do a quick blog on it as it was so tasty, probably completely unauthentic though!!! Running is definitely the key to keeping sane when you have kids!!!! xxx Thanks for comment!
