Beef & Vegetable Nem; which is first: cheese or dessert? — 2 Comments

  1. I’ve never found phyllo in France, but it doesn’t matter because I’ve discovered brick, which is much better behaved and gives a better result. I can get spring roll/wonton wrappers if I remember to call in at the Asian grocers in the big city an hour away.

    Thank you for your explanation of why the British tradition is to have the cheese after dessert. I’ve never understood it, and my palate certainly doesn’t.

    • Susan, I almost always find phyllo and, when I don’t, I also use brick. As to the wonton wrappers, I have looked and looked at our Asian market and no luck. Lots of rice paper, but not the wonton. I’ll be there around Chinese New Year this year, maybe I’ll get lucky lol
