Modern Vegetarian Cookery

This is a variation of Walter and Jenny Fleiss' recipe taken from my first cookery book, Modern Vegetarian Cookery (ISBN 0140461043), my battered copy of which is illustrated on the right.

It contains vegetables and three different types of cheese.

Serving suggestions

On its own as a snack or as an accompaniment to meat or fish.


Use whatever combination of cheese you wish, but try to keep it so that you have one soft, one firm and one blue.
