Chargrilled Leeks with Truffle Cheese

We’ve adapted this from a Riverford Organic’s recipe in celebration of St. David’s Day. Our special addition is Snowdonia Cheese Company’s Truffle Trove cheese which really makes it a dish fit for a saint. We cooked this on our Plain Jane Swing Arm but would work equally well on a Half Moon BBQ Rack. To vary this recipe, you could try adding lightly toasted pinenuts or pumpkin seeds, or using a sweet-sour dressing made with olive oil, balsamic or red wine vinegar and a little sugar. Other cheeses such as Feta, Gorgonzola or Dolcelatte are also a delicious addition.
