The Pretty Pear Panino

I love this Panino! Creamy Brie Cheese from Zengarry Cashew Cheeses & Balsamic Fig Jam belongs with fresh, sliced Pear. I've always made this Panino with this locally made Balsamic Fig Jam. But you can make it with any fig jam which can be found at most grocery stores!

They say the perfect dish has each of the four components: Salt, Fat, Acid and Heat. And this Pretty Pear Panino is a perfect example of the magic that happens when those four components come together. We get our Salt from the creamy “brie” cheese and fresh fluffy focaccia. Our fat comes from the rich cashew cheese. The beautiful balsamic fig jam is the acid, which allows the fatty components to be cut. And of course, the heat comes from the grilled panino.

This perfect sandwich is:

  • Toasty

  • Sweet and Savoury

  • Melty (beautiful melted cheese)

  • Sophisticated

So, let’s get to it! There's no special equipment requirement* to make this panino at home. So, gather all of your ingredients and start building your sandwich!
