Pork and fennel puff rolls


When i posted up the chicken and bacon puff rolls, few blogger friends suggested me to try this Pork and fennel pull rolls. They said this pork roll is good and tempted me to make this pork roll at home. This was 1st time I tried pork roll as we could not easily find pork related bakery items selling in the bakery shop here due to Halal issue..I would say this pork roll taste is as good as chicken roll.

This time i even make my own puff pastry from Bourke stree bakery cookbook. It was tedious (took 2days to complete) and very difficult to handle in hot weather here..Anyway, the homemade puff pastry is so good, very buttery and nice aroma. I will not share the recipe here since the recipe is too long to write and also copyright issue and furthermore it is not nice for me to copy their whole recipe since they took so much of effort to write this book..You can anytime replace it with store-bought puff pastry..

Wow, indeed you pork & fennel sausage rolls look so yummy!Over the weekend, I went to the bookstore to copy the recipe of sausage roll & then, bang, you posted it, even better to me. Next time, I could just follow it from here. But of course, I won't homemade the puff pastry, hahaha, too much of tedious works involve & it will take me so much of time.

Really great to see you posting this recipe! It is something that I'm planning to make in the near future.Thank you very much!
