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 lim

For the quesadilla:

  • one 250g camembert
  • 8 flour tortillas
