The Bread Series



This is the last one of our Bread Series and this lovely collaboration and I’m already having some withdrawal symptoms. This delicious ragi bread from Le Artisan Boulangerie is gorgeous with some butter in the morning and even better in this version of the classic chilli cheese toast.

During my childhood visits to India, my grandfather often took me to Sea Lounge for afternoon tea – it was as classic as the classic movies, old school and oh-so-very elegant. But the food was real, unpretentious and down-to-earth and very, very good. The chilli cheese toast is not an item I would imagine in a 5-star posh menu, but that’s me being unfairly arrogant.

So today, I thought, why not make this into a gourmet-ed up version, using a medley of cheeses such as cheddar, smoked cheese and some creamy ricotta. And because I cannot do without hot sauce, some hot sauce too!

Simply stir the filling up, spread on the bread slice and grill in the oven – easy, quick, tasty, and nostalgic too!
