Goat Cheese Mousse with 7 Tastes Chutney in Philo dough layered crust

Makes 4 portions

  • 3 sheets Philo dough
  • Seven Tastes Chutney
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) butter
  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces) total of assorted spices: basil, parsley, coriander, chive
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced black pepper
  • 14 ounces goat cheese (hard and half-hard)
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) heavy cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Melt 4 ounces of the butter–a little more than half a stick–in tray; spread layer of Philo dough over butter, then the next two layers

Use a knife to cut all 3 layers of dough into 4 equal squares; form each square into a bowl, spread remaining butter on top. Place dough bowls on baking sheet and cook in oven for 10 minutes, then remove and let cool

In a separate container, grate the cheese, mix in the chopped spices and garlic; heat the remaining 3 ounces of butter in microwave, add to cheese and spices

Whip the heavy cream until foamy, add to cheese mixture and then pour mixture into dough bowls

Place dough bowls on serving plates, add 1/4-jar Chutney on the side. Serve cold
