Fennel and Cheese Tart.

Remove tough out skin of the fennel and trim any tough tops. Slice through the middle so the slices stay together as one piece.
Heat some oil and butter in a frying pan and place the fennel in when it has browned turn it over and place the pan into a pre heated oven at 180 degrees. Leave to cook for 10mins and remove to cool.
Roll out some puff pastry (I nearly always use pre-bought) to about 1/2mm thickness and fold the edges over and crimp. Place the fennel on the pastry and scatter over your cheese of choice - I was going to use Comte but decided to use a cheese i have not heard of before (the name escapes me, but it was very similar to comte!!) after a chat with the guys on the cheese stall in Winchester market. This is probably the best cheese stall I have ever visited and is at Winchester market every thursday, friday and saturday.
