When you think of something like “fusion cuisine”, it’s easy to imagine that things have to get really complicated and involve a professional chef. To me, however, fusion cuisine is the simple combination of ingredients from different countries. Take quesadillas for example: originally from Mexico, they’re usually filled with cheese and beans. If you change the ingredients just a little though, say use French Camembert, you’ll straight away have a little bit of fusion cuisine right there on your plate. And the best part is of course that this is a fairly quick meal that is suitable for any season.


Here's what you'll need...

For the filling:


  • 1 small apple, finely chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1tsp finely chopped chilli pepper
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2tbsp finely chopped basil
  • 2tbsp finely chopped spring onions
  • juice of ½ lime


For the quesadilla:


  • one 250g camembert
  • 8 flour tortillas


  • 1

    If you haven’t done so yet, finely chop the apple, tomatoes, chilli pepper, spring onions and basil.

  • 2

    Mix together with the olive oil and lime juice and set aside.

  • 3

    Heat your griddle pan on a medium heat and add a little oil to prevent sticking.

    Now place one tortilla into the pan.

  • 4

    Top with some camembert slices. Once the camembert starts to melt, add some of the filling and lightly press into the cheese with a fork.

  • 5

    Turn the tortillas onto the other side and fry for another 2 minutes.

  • 6

    Once done, cut into 4 pieces and serve with some salad on the side.
