  • 160 g Saint Nectaire AOP Xavier David
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 5 cl olive oil
  • 20 g sun-dried tomatoes
  • 20 g pitted black olives
  • Table salt, pepper

Preparation steps

  1. Preheat barbecue to 230°C.
  2. Wrap potatoes in aluminium foil and cook under the barbecue hood for 50 minutes. Check potatoes are cooked – a knife should slide in easily. Remove aluminium foil and set aside in a cool place.
  3. When cold, cube the potato and the cheese (rind removed). Blend thoroughly in a blender, adding a trickle of olive oil and the peeled, finely chopped garlic.
  4. Finely chop olives and sun-dried tomatoes.
  5. When the cheese and potatoes are smoothly blended, turn into a bowl and stir in the olives and tomatoes. Adjust seasoning and serve at room temperature with sesame breadsticks or toasted crusty farmhouse bread.


😉 Tip: For this recipe you could add capers or green olives and serve with roast pine nuts.
