Recipe: Cheese and garlic pull-apart bread

Now that the evenings are starting to cool down try out the cheese and garlic pull-apart bread with a glass of Sacred Hill Orange Label Pinot Noir – it should definitely warm you up!


  • 5 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped finely/minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small loaf (sour dough or cob loaf etc.)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • Salt to season
  • 120g mozzarella cheese (either chopped into small squares or shredded)


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°
  2. Combine the garlic cloves, parsley and olive oil in a small bowl.
  3. Heat the butter in a small frying pan and sauté the garlic mixture for 2 minutes, remove from heat.
  4. Using a serrated / bread knife, every 1 inch cut diagonally across the whole loaf. Repeating in the opposite direction also – ensuring you don’t cut the bread right the way through.
  5. Using a spoon, drizzle the garlic butter mixture through all the cuts
  6. Place the cheese throughout the cuts as well.
  7. Place the loaf on a sheet of tin foil, folding the sides up to the top. Also cover the top of the loaf with a separate piece of tin foil.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the top piece of tin foil and bake for another 10 minutes (or until the cheese has melted completely).
