Ricotta pie

Filo is a very forgiving pastry to work with, and it creates a beautiful flaky case for this savoury cheese filling. Keep a packet on hand in the fridge for this delicious, easy meal.

Yoghurt cheese

A delicious soft cheese made from drained Greek yoghurt that goes with lamb or you can just spread it on crackers. You can also roll it in herbs to create the Middle Eastern yoghurt balls called Labne.

Cheesy Potato Bake

This cheesy potato bake is easy to make and a tasty accompaniment to a BBQ chicken and salad. Using plenty of cheese and cream, the recipe also includes a little fried bacon to give it an extra crunch.

Cheesey scones

These are delicious straight from the oven while they are hot and smear with more lashings of butter. Cut them in half and stuff with ham and tomato then reheat under the grill.

Fried halloumi

This is a traditional Greek dish and has a deliciously tasty salty flavour to the cheese. Here it is served up with a drizzle of olive oil, cracked black pepper and good quality olive oil.

Messy cheese pies

These little quiches are a big hit with my kids because the flaky (messy) pastry appeals to their taste buds and sense of chaos. I like them because you can hide egg, corn and other yellowish vegetables (pureed pumpkin, carrot, yellow zucchini etc)
