Enjoy a fried slice of dairy heavenBy Kara Wille
If you’re like me, you have a Pavlovian response to the words Fried Cheese. Cheese? Gooood. Fried? Gooooood. Put ‘em together and you might as well ring a bell and commence salivation.
Although I’ve been a fan of fried Haloumi for some time, its relative scarcity around these parts (you can find it if you look hard enough, it’s just not always the best) means that I’d gotten out of the habit of fried cheese and salad for dinner.
Well, no more. The Upper Canada Cheese Company has resuscitated my fried cheese habit with its amazing Guernsey Girl cheese.
Made from the milk of a single herd of Guernsey cows, this cheese is specially made for frying or grilling. It’s buttery but not bland, creates its own delicious crust in the pan and squeaks a bit as you bite through. Fried up and sprinkled with a crunchy salt like Maldon, it’s pure dairy heaven. So much so that I’m not sure I’ll ever explore the recipes devised for the Guernsey Girl challenge, it’s just so perfect on its own, hot out of the pan. uppercanadacheesecompany.com.
