Fig and cheese starter – Serves 2
Ingredients:
4 x Ripe Fresh Figs
Primula cheese of choice
4 x slices of Parma Ham
Pistachio nuts – finely chopped

Method:
With a sharp knife cut a cross into the top of each fig, cutting two thirds of the way down and open each fig up slightly. Pipe Primula cheese into the centre of each fig, place two on each serving plate and surround the base of each fig with a slice of Parma Ham. Sprinkle with the chopped Pistachio nuts and before serving drizzle with runny honey.

Tomato “Pops”
Ingredients:
Small Italian red ripe tomatoes
Primula cheese of choice
Chives – finely chopped
Wooden Skewers

Method: (Note the skewers go into the stalk end!)
With a sharp knife cut a lid off the base of the tomatoes (not the stalk end!) and, with a small sharp knife cut the core out of each tomato and scrape out the seeds. Drain upside down on kitchen paper.

Fill the tomatoes with Primula cheese straight from the tube. Insert a wooden skewer into the stalk end of the tomato. Sprinkle with chopped chives.

Christmas Star Sandwiches
Equipment: one large and one small star cutter.

Ingredients:
White Bread
Primula Cheese of choice
Chives – finely chopped
Red Chillies – finely chopped
Cucumber, cut into ribbons

Method:
For each sandwich lightly toast two slices of bread. Spread Primula cheese on one slice and sprinkle with finely chopped chives or chillies. Cut a large star out of the second piece of toast and then a small star out of the centre. Place this prepared star on top of the first slice of prepared toast and recut with the large star cutter to make a star sandwich.

The method for the cucumber one is exactly the same except:
– Spread one slice of toast with Primula cheese of choice and overlap with cucumber ribbons. Proceed as above to cut out the star sandwich.
