Method

 

Wynand Wilters is the man behind today's lovely recipe.

Preheat the oven to 160 °C and line a 35 x 25-cm baking sheet with baking paper.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour to form a paste.

Slowly stir in the milk with a balloon whisk until the sauce thickens and boils.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Stir in the egg yolks, salt and dill until well mixed.

Beat the egg whites to the soft-point stage and fold into the white sauce mixture. Spoon onto the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes.

Turn out onto a wire rack covered with a clean drying-up cloth. Allow to cool slightly before removing the paper. Roll up.

FILLING

Mix the filling ingredients together and season with pepper.

Unroll the roll, spread with the filling and use a sharp knife to cut off the edges.

Roll up like a Swiss roll. G

arnish with fresh herbs and cherry tomatoes.
