In Spain, a simple and delicious starter or “tapa” is a plate of cheese with a glass of fine red wine. Sometimes the most simple flavours are the best and cheese and wine as we all know are perfect partners. The concept of this dish was born over a plate of cheese and a glass or two of wine with an idea to make a cheesecake complemented by some Rioja red wine jelly. We used a red wine jelly we had found from a small producer based in the Sierra de Huelva in southern Spain but you can of course make your own. The explosion of flavours with the three cheeses and the red wine are complemented with another Spanish favourite: fig bread.
