Gently press down to fan the slices out. Season with sugar, salt and pepper. Drizzle each serving with 1 tsp red wine vinegar and top with the Taleggio slices.

Place on the middle rack of the oven beneath a hot grill. When done, take out, top with fresh wild rocket, drizzle with olive oil and eat immediately.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
