Appetizer 12/7/21

Flaming Saganaki

On the menu, this was rather aptly called “Cheese On Fire”. It’s Kefalograviera cheese (you may know it better as Halloumi), which is a very firm cheese that fries without melting. It’s flambeed with a bit of alcohol to get a crispy dark edge and topped wih fresh oregano, pistachios, and honey. Shouting “Opa!” when it is brought to the table is optional, depending on the venue and the quality of your dinner company.
