halloumi and watermelon

default halloumi and watermelon

Post by Robin Wood on 5th September 2011, 8:51 pm

Just discovered halloumi and watermelon a combination made in heaven (or Cyprus apparently it's popular there) sweet crunchy juicy melon is the perfect match for the rich salty grilled halloumi.



Bowls by me, Wille Sundqvist and Richard Raffan, plates mine, wine glass air twist by Tony Wassell, cutlery Alexander Clark Co Sheffield, 2006 Rioja and good company to share it with, bliss.

In no way wishing to overlook the bowls and plate (or the lovely food that covers them), but I love the wine glass ! How does he do that stem ?

well before the foot is put on the round stem he squeezes the stem with long thin plier type tools from 2 directions. This creates 4 grooves, it's dipped back into the furnace and coated with a bit more glass leaving 4 elongated bubbles underneath. Then it's drawn out and twisted. It was a common technique in the 18th Century but Tony is one of the only folk doing it now.

I love the plates, it is my ambition to one day turn my own bowls and plates.
