ah, but did you line the grill pan with silver foil first?

mat says:

I did, why do you ask? It would have fallen through the gaps if I hadn't..

anon was me. I'm a silver foil facist, whereas spouse is not ... and we had cheese on toast for lunch today too - I now see that you have foil under the bread - doesn't that make for soggy toast?
I'm not normally this anal, honestly ; )

Electric Sheep says:

I put foil UNDER the grill as to catch the drips. But not so it's on contact with the bread.

There's no bread there, that's just cheese. All Hail Halloumi, The Cheese That Grills!

For normal cheese on toast, I agree - no foil. The toast totally goes soggy with foil. I'm so obsessive about cheese on toast that I have a particular blend of pepper specially imported from the Far East, just because it's perfect on cheese on toast, and I use this pepper for that and that alone. I have never seen Aji-Sho white pepper on sale in this country, but if you do, buy some, it's great.

Under the grill. pffft. I bet you're the kind of person who has never had a building evacuated 'cos your grillpan was so violently aflame. :)

Actually, everywhere I've lived, I've run out of carrying a violently burning grillpan at least once. Hmm.

Gael (pretending to write an essay) says:

Just got back to this. Will keep eyes peeled for Aji-shio, sounds good
"I have a paricular blend of pepper specially imported from the Far East"
that sounds like something Steven Fry would say !

Oh, and we went one better than merely evacuating the building - we had to have the fire brigade around, but that was something left on the hob, not the grill pan ...

mat says:

it sounds so much more impressive than it is :) Aji-sho is a ground white pepper with MSG added. But I like a bit of added umami from time to time, it helps the along cheese nicely. Nice cheese tastes better, and horrible cheap plasticky cheese becomes bearable.

It's the Omega grill :)

Is Halloumi readily available in Norwich then Mat?!?

15th Nov 2006, 12:27

mat says:

Er, yes. Any of the major supermarkets will sell it to you, it's no more or less rare than, say, feta.

Do you remember The Mouse Trap on Pottergate? Now that was a quality cheese shop. I used to spend ages in there, "testing" stuff.

I think I do vaguely remember that. Must have been several years ago now! Was it near that Hoopers Surplus place?

15th Nov 2006, 12:36

mat says:

it was next door to the barbers, just by the green. tiny little place, but really good. Close to Hoopers, yes.

Aji-Shio flavoured Black Pepper is brilliant too. I haven't been able to find it in the UK so I get my brother to send it to me from Malaysia :-)
