Pots of Gold


Pots of Gold
Serves 4

Not quite the leprechauns’ pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but a little bit of foodie treasure nonetheless. Ireland produces such a terrific array of top quality cheeses, grilling them just makes them extra gooey and delicious.

1 loaf of rustic bread (such as sourdough), sliced
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
2 bunches of red seedless grapes
4 small wheels of Brie or Camembert-style cheeses

Toast the bread slices on a medium grill or BBQ until charred with grill marks. Keep warm.
Lightly oil the bunches of grapes and place the whole bunches on a medium-hot grill until they start to burst.
Place the cheeses on a medium-hot grill until they’re charred and starting to melt.
Serve the grilled cheese hot with the grapes and toasted bread.

Ish Factor: I have a great love of cheese and one of my favourite jobs was judging the Irish Cheese Awards – not really work at all! With such a selection of excellent cheeses to choose from, it’s worthwhile spending some time trying samples at cheese counters and delicatessens.
