  • I use Exmoor Blue, but Stilton or Gorgonzola will also work well

  1. Heat the oven 200C/180C Fan/gas mark 6.

  2. Roughly dice the butternut squash into approximately 2cm cubes, it doesn’t have to be exact. Also, the squash doesn’t have to be peeled, just deseeded. I find the skin gives it a bit more texture, but you can peel it if you prefer. Put in a roasting tray with the chilli flakes, 4 crushed garlic cloves, the stalks of the sage but not the leaves, salt, pepper and olive oil and give it a good mix. Roast for 25-35 minutes or until tender.

  3. Break up the blue cheese into little pieces.

  4. Toast the walnut halves in a dry frying pan for a few minutes until brown.

  5. Make a honey dressing by mixing the honey, lemon, olive oil and seasoning together. Take the squash out of the oven and leave for 5 minutes. Strain any excess cooking juices into the honey dressing. If you like, you can roast the squash off the day before and just warm it back up for a few minutes in the oven when needed.

  6. Slice the focaccia, rub it with olive oil and garlic and grill or toast for a couple of minutes on each side.

  7. Mix the squash, blue cheese, walnuts, dressing and a few sage leaves together and place on top of the focaccia – so simple but so satisfying: Salty cheese, sweet honey and chilli heat are a great combo!
