INGREDIENTS (For 20x bites)

  • Sliced white bread

  • 80g Butternut Squash
  • 100g Kimchi
  • 100g Parmesan Cheese
  • 50g Black Sesame Seeds
  • 10g Coriander Cress


Make 40 bread crisps by cutting circles from slices of bread with a circular cutter; then cut off a small amount from the bottom of each circle to allow them to stand up when assembled. Cook in the oven at 180o C (gas oven) / 200oC (electric oven) until golden and crisp.

Cut burrata in half and let excess moisture drain out on kitchen paper for 10 minutes. Once drained roughly chop into 0.5cm pieces and add to a piping bag. Chop kimchi and add to a container. Place to one side.

Slice butter nut squash 0.5cm thick (approximately), and cut with a circular cutter to the same size as the bread.

To assemble place equal amounts of burrata on both side of bread, followed by kimchi and sandwich the butternut squash inside. Push together to form a ‘sandwich’.

Sprinkle with black sesame seeds, followed by finely grated parmesan, and garnish with a spring of coriander cress.
