Having a brunch or a party? Need something quick to serve with wine or just something to nibble on? These are swiftly prepared and reward you with great looks and taste as if they were purchased at exquisite shops. A good way to use up the Tapenade you have made earlier or even shop-bought if you can’t be bothered at all. Or use grated cheese, harissa, blue cheese. Good puff pastry is a must.
1 packet of good butter puff pastry

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Roll out the sheet of puff pastry and cut in two rectangular pieces. Cover with a thin layer of tapenade and mark the middle of the sheet with a little dent. Roll the pastry tightly from both sides to meet in the middle, looking like a cassette tape (remember?). Cut thin slices (about 7mm or ¼ inch) with a sharp knife and without squashing the double rolls too much. Place on a baking sheet covered in parchment and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Leave to cool.
