  • No-Knead bread or a hearty sourdough – sliced
  • Ripe Williams’ Bon Chrétien’ pears – sliced
  • Caramelised onion jam
  • Ashed goat cheese / soft chevre
  • Semi-hard goat cheese or another melty cheese like gruyere or fontina – sliced
  • Watercress or roquette – torn
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper


Spread two slices of bread with the soft chevre. Top one piece of bread with a layer of onion jam followed by a layer of sliced pear. Add a couple slices of semi-hard cheese followed by a small handful of watercress and a bit of fresh cracked black pepper. Top with the other piece of bread – cheese side down.

Brush or spray with olive oil and grill in a non-stick pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes each side until the cheese is melted and the ingredients are warmed through. You can also place in a sandwich press.

Sprinkle with sea salt. Serve straight or with a watercress and roquette salad, some fruit and a glass of iced green tea.
