  1. 1/2 pound soft cheese, such as Italian Fontina, Bel Paese or Bulgarian Cheddar or Monterey Jack
  2. Light Tea-Smoking Mixture
  3. Toasted sliced baguette or crackers, for serving
  1. Place the cheese in a shallow heat-proof dish small enough to hold the cheese snugly. Smoke the cheese according to the Basic Wok-Smoking Method, 8 to 10 minutes for soft cheeses and 12 to 15 minutes for firm cheeses. The cheese should be very soft to almost completely melted. Serve it warm, still in the dish, with the toasts or crackers.
