Consumer diet trends pushing paneer, halloumi into backyard barbecues.
Grilling cheese has long been a staple in many European countries.
Austria’s Concept Fresh Gusteria brand markets burger cheese and snacking medallions. Both come with grill marks so they can be easily microwaved.
Danish cheesemaker Nordex has received numerous accolades for its Taverna Grill Cheese Snack Cubes with Green Pesto. They are designed to be grilled with a touch of oil in a pan until the surface browns. This gives the cheese a slight caramelized note. The sweetness of the caramelized surface provides a delicious contrast to the mildly salty cheese and the fresh green pesto.
Greece’s Olympus Tyras Group markets Feta Ready to Bake or Grill, which is two feta “filets” in marinade in a foil pan for reduced mess and cleanup. It can be put directly on the grill or in the oven. The three varieties are: chili and paprika, Mediterranean herb, and red bell pepper, onion and dill.
