‘Croque monsieur’

Croque Monsieur

This is a dish I’m trying out for tomorrow’s dinner. Now, I’m not a great fan of deconstruction for the sake of it. But I am a fan of snappy names for dishes, so while this isn’t strictly speaking a croque monsieur (there’s no bread for a start – the bread being provided throughout in keeping with French hospitality) it is cheese and ham, so I thought it was a better title than ‘Goat’s cheese on parma ham with cherry compote’. But there it is: simple and delicate and utterly delicious. Can’t grumble at that for a cheese course!
