Charter Catamaran NAUTICAT OF FOWEY Recipe : Leek, Mushroom & Feta Filo Rolls

The charter yacht NAUTICAT OF FOWEY, a 47-foot Leopard catamaran, has a recipe to share:


First make your filling:
  • Wash and finely slice 3 leeks and a handful of mushrooms.
  • Gently sauté these in a pan with a little olive oil and a couple of sprigs of thyme and seasoning to taste.
  • Mix in 3 – 4 oz of crumbled feta cheese or you can use goats’ cheese if you prefer. 
  • Allow mixture to cool while you prepare your filo.
Prepare your filo:
  • Take one packet of filo and carefully open out the sheets and lay them on a board and cover with some cling wrap to keep them moist.
  • Melt one stick of butter.
  • Take a sheet of filo and lay it on your work board – brush it carefully with the melted butter. Lay a second sheet on top. Cut the two sheets into three sections to give three oblongs and brush around the four edges of each one.
Now make the filo rolls:
  • At the top end of each, place a small tight bundle of your leek mixture and fold in the top and the two sides all the way down.
  • Roll these up into cigar shape parcels and place onto a baking sheet with the seam underneath.
  • When all complete, brush the tops with beaten egg and chill down in the fridge for an hour or so.
  • Cook in a hot oven for about 20 minutes or until the tops have gone golden brown. 

Variations – You can make much bigger ones to make as a main veggie dish and you could use any combo of cooked /leftover veg and herbs and cheese – maybe Brie or Mozzarella to make them a little bit gooey.
– Enjoy!
