George Calombaris: Warm manouri with strawberry glyko


You'll need

500 gm strawberries (about 2 punnets), trimmed and halved 100 gm caster sugar 75 ml apple juice 1 tbsp sherry vinegar 1 cinnamon quill 200 ml balsamic vinegar 100 ml port 400 gm piece manouri cheese, cut into four slices (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Combine strawberries in a saucepan with sugar, apple juice, sherry vinegar and cinnamon, and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the simmer, cook until strawberries are soft and liquid has reduced to a glaze (12-15 minutes), then cool to room temperature.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, combine balsamic vinegar and port in a saucepan and simmer over medium-high heat until reduced by two-thirds (8-10 minutes), then cool completely.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Place manouri on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake until just warm (4-5 minutes). Serve warm with strawberry glyko and balsamic glaze.
Note Manouri is available from Greek delicatessens.
