Those who know me well know that I am a big fan of Nigella Lawson. It was her book 'How to be a domestic goddess', a gift from my darling friend Sarah, that really sparked my initial interest in baking. That was 6 years ago now and my love for baking and cooking all manner of things has continued to grow and flourish under the tutor-ledge of the incomparable Nigella Lawson.
If you haven't tried the Georgian specialty Hachapuri, you're in for a treat; if you have, you're in for a repeat treat. It is basically a bread with a gooey, cheesy filling. The bread in question is really a soda bread, made with bicarb as a raising agent in place of the usual yeast. This makes it incredibly quick to make, because soda breads do not require proofing (rising). The cheesy centre in question is made up of fresh ricotta, fetta and mozzarella. I didn't actually have ricotta in the house, so I used cottage cheese in its place with an equally successful result.
Do try this delicious Hachapuri recipe- it's simple and incredibly yummy.
