When was the last time I blogged? I know, I know….a very long time ago. A lot has happened since last time I was here. Anyway,  here I am, still alive and about to  post the recipe of these delicious parmesan straws. As this blog has become my online recipe book I must keep a record of it. I made it for a group of friends who came to dinner to have with our prosecco at the start. Delicious! Then again how can anything made with parmesan not be delicious? They were so light and melt in the mouth. Simply to die for. My husband said it was his favourite part of the meal.  The recipe comes from Jamie Oliver, slightly adapted. Here we go then…


  • 150 g unsalted butter (cold)
  • 225 g plain flour
  • 75 g Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • 1 egg yolk


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°C/gas mark 6.
  2. Line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper and set aside.
  3. Cut the butter into small cubes, then place in a bowl. Add the flour and rub together until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Finely grate the Parmesan, then add 60g to the flour and butter. Stir in the egg yolk.
  5. Roll it out on a floured surface, forming a rectangle about 1cm thick or a bit less. Slice it into 1cm sticks and place onto the baking sheets.
  6. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and bake for 15 to 20 minutes,

Jamie Oliver added half a teaspoon of dry mustard to the mixture as well as some paprika. He also didn’t use the egg but used water instead. Up to you.
