This would be a wonderful centrepiece for a special celebratory meal, such as a summer wedding, christening, anniversary, birthday or a bridal shower. Open faced omelettes, studded with fresh vegetables and herbs including chives and chive flowers, are sandwiched together with herb and garlic cream cheese to create a savoury vegetarian gateau! Top the gateau off with parmesan cheese shavings and toss baby salad leaves on and around the gateau to serve. This does take a little time to prepare, however, it is made a day before it is needed, making it ideal for a special event. You could add thinly sliced ham or crispy bacon if this is not required as a vegetarian dish. Preparation time includes the chilling time overnight. (The idea for this recipe was taken from a Good Food magazine - summer 2008.)
