Boy and girl eating cheese (7)


I believe the answer is:


'boy' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'girl eating cheese' is the wordplay.
'girl' becomes 'gal' ('gal' can be a synonym of 'girl').
'eating' is an insertion indicator.
'cheese' becomes 'brie' (Brie is an example).
'gal' going around 'brie' is 'GABRIEL'.

'and' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for gabriel that I've seen before include "Boy" , "The angel with a trumpet" , "Dante - Rossetti, nineteenth century English poet/painter" , "Archangel who plays the trumpet" , "Man'" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
