Starter Option #1:

Grilled Halloumi

Mild taste with a slightly salty natural flavour, halloumi is an incredibly trendy cheese at the moment, popping up in any and every restaurant. Jump on the band wagon and serve this crowd pleasing cheese as an appetiser at your next dinner party.

Pair it with: Chilli Pepper Infused Olive Oil and Pomegranate &  Fig Infused Balsamic

The chilli and garlic infused olive oil is an ideal pairing with the infused balsamic, lending its chilli heat to the richness of the fig, and adding a more savoury element with the garlic to contrast the pomegranate.
