    Thanks for posting this Caroline!! Looks wonderful. And the talk of Spanakopita… oh lord, love Greek food! Actually found Haloumi the other day, so will have to think of a great way to use that!

  2. Have been reading your blog for a while now and it’s great to see other Irish people writing about food. It is only a matter of time before hundreds of Irish food blogs pop up, they really are in short supply at the moment! I started mine (I am an Irish chef who travels all over the world cooking for billionaires and celebrities) 3 months ago and there is definitely an audience out there! Keep up the good work and rest assured there is an Irish audience there to be tapped!

    The only times that I’ve ever used halloumi, Deborah, I’ve cooked it the Nigella way – pan-frying slices and serving it with fresh red chillis, lemon juice and olive oil – and it’s good if you have a pan that you can get hot enough to really sear the cheese. Actually, now that you mention it, I have a pack of halloumi currently languishing in my Dublin fridge – something to investigate one of these spring evenings!Great to hear from another Irish blogger, Niall, especially one who’s travelling so far afield. The Boyfriend’s cousin just spent the last year working as a sailor on one of those yachts, based mainly in the Mediterranean, and he spoke very highly about the chefs on board his yacht, how they used to produce fabulous meals and breads from such a tiny galley. I’ve a new-found respect for sea-based chefs!

    Caroline – I made this tonight, and I love it! Reminds me of Italian enchiladas, or maybe stuffed cannelloni with crepes instead of pasta. I pulled out a roll from the dish and sliced it like sushi. Too bad my camera died.

    Delighted to hear that you liked it, Viki! As you probably noticed, I was so involved with getting the dinner on the table for my friends the other night that I completely forgot to take a photo too…
