thoughts&stories

Halloumi is a Cypriot cheese though the first time I had it was in a Lebanese restaurant.  It is fantastic on a salad or even with some roasted eggplant and/or zucchini (courgettes)….now let’s add a bit of fresh tomato sauce for something really special.

I could not live without this griddle. Pressed sandwiches are so easy and require less fat, but this also works for making the most of Halloumi cheese. Love it! Available at Williams-Sonoma or at other retailers in the UK.
