Slice the cheese into 1/2" thick triangles or 3-4" squares (depending on the style you buy).
Place brandy into a zip-lock baggie and add cheese portions, seal and let marinate for 2 hours).
Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over a med/high heat. Remove cheese portions from marinade, reserving marinade for later use.
Dredge cheese thru the flour, shaking off excess.
Fry the cheese slices approx 2 minutes, flip with spatula and fry an additional 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat when nicely seared on each side and gooey.
Now here is where you need to heed a caution -- Carefully carry the cast iron skillet to the dinner table. Pour 1 ounce of the brandy marinade over the top of the fried cheese, and immediately set ablaze with a lighter. (Be sure to yell "Opa". Immediately squeeze a lemon slice over the top to dowse the flames.
Serve with warmed pita slices and additional lemon wedges. Enjoy!
