Cut 150 g Époisses into rectangular pieces about 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thick and 4 cm (2 inches) long (1 piece of cheese per parcel).

Pepper them, then sprinkle with linseeds on both sides, pressing lightly so that the seeds stick to the cheese.

Roll up each piece of cheese in a sheet of brik to form a neat little parcel.

Fry the parcels in a hot frying pan until golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately with the salad.
