We hope you enjoyed the Brie and Camembert Diamond S had available last week. If you would like more or are still needing to try some get in touch with Kris to place an order. Here is a look at the cheesy dessert we tried this weekend. It was brie, topped with delicious fresh raspberries from Lloyd Craft Farms, baked inside an egg washed crescent roll. Brie is delicious paired with many fruits and wine.
This week we are excited to bring back Halloumi – here is some information on halloumi since not too many of us have heard of this type of cheese.
It's hard to remember a time when halloumi wasn’t a mainstay of British dinner tables – As Cyprus edges towards giving its national cheese protected status, there's no better time to pick up a pack and try a new way with halloumi.
It’s not authentic, because in Cyprus, halloumi is strictly made of goat’s or sheep’s milk, but at Diamond S Delights this week we have our delicious Brown Swiss and Jersey A2 milk made into Halloumi with the addition of fresh mint. This gives it a unique character and looks beautiful when sliced across the grain to expose the mint leaves sandwiched within the fold of the cheese. Grill or pan-fry halloumi and serve with other Mediterranean-style foods for a special meal or snack. Or try one of the recipes we’ve found that sound pretty darn good.
Not only are we bringing back halloumi, but marinated feta as well! The cheese is aged a week in the fridge, then marinated in extra virgin organic olive oil. Spices used are crushed garlic, rosemary, basil, black pepper and organic tomatoes from Lloyd Craft Farms are added to the mix.
