Whether you’re hooked on haloumi or simply crazy about cheddar, we’ve got delicious recipes to satisfy your cravings.

Cheddar Fondue

Serves 4

• ½ small onion
• 250 ml dry cider
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• 375 g cheddar, grated
• ½ tsp dry mustard
• 3 tsp corn flour
• 3 tbsp apple juice

Rub the inside of a fondue pot with the cut side of an onion. Pour in the cider and lemon juice, and heat gently until bubbly. Reduce the heat to low and gradually stir in the grated cheese. Continue to heat until the cheese melts, stirring frequently. In a small bowl, blend together the mustard, corn flour and apple juice. Stir into the cheese mixture and continue to cook for 3 minutes until the mixture is thick and creamy. Stir frequently. Season well. Serve with wedges of apple and cubes of crusty bread.

Fried Halloumi

Serves 2

• 1 lime, juice and zest
• 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
• 1 tbsp capers, drained
• 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
• 1 tsp grain mustard
• 2 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
• 4 tbsp olive oil
• 1 haloumi cheese
• 2 tbsp seasoned flour

To prepare the dressing, whisk all the ingredients together, apart from 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the cheese and flour. Then, pat the cheese dry with kitchen paper and cut it into 8 slices. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan. When the oil is really hot, press each slice of cheese into the flour, coating it on both sides. Add the cheese to the hot pan – the slices take 1 minute on each side to cook and turn golden brown. Serve them straight away with crusty bread, wedges of lemon, a couple of sprigs of rosemary and the dressing.
