Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese is a great appetizer and the perfect accompaniment to salads of fresh or baked vegetables and herbs.

You can fry almost any kind of cheese, the most well-known grilled cheeses are Greek haloumi, Caucasian suluguni and Asian tofu. Adygei cheese, feta, brie, camembert and mozzarella, which for some reason is rarely fried, although this cheese is great to bake on pizza, are very tasty in fried form.

While haloumi or tofu can be grilled without breading or batter, for other especially soft cheeses, it is better to make a dough batter. In this version, the soft cheese turns into a tender melted mass in a crispy coating. Today we would like to offer our signature recipe of grilled brie cheese with tomato chutney
