What temp. do you bake the Bri Giulio?  I have a wood stove so is a bit harder to have consistent temp.  Can you cut the block of cheese?  Your photos are beaut, would almost hate to eat those meals!

Lorraine, that is really delicious. Let me tell you that you have tried the real Umami, not many people know about this but it is so interesting and you can do a deeper research and create great meals full of Umami.

I had a wonderful feed, organic mushrooms given to me by a friend.

Sauteed mushrooms in butter and browned them near the end I added spinach straight from the garden, wilted a bit and then served on crusty home made bread.. YUM simple but delicious
