Aphrodite Kefalotyri is the traditional Greek cheese used for the famous fried dish, Saganaki (meaning 'little frying pan').
Handmade in north-western Greece for Will Studd, it’s the unique combination of pure sheep and goat's milk that makes this ancient hard Greek cheese such a sensational treat.
Moisten slices with a little water and dredge lightly in flour before gently frying in a little olive oil. You'll know it's ready to serve when the center begins to melt and ooze beneath a crispy brown crust. This authentic Greek version of Halloumi is also a versatile cooking cheese and tastes wonderful grated and melted on top of pasta, mac & cheese, and savory pies. It’s ideal for grill season in a salad or burger, and a fantastic vegetarian option for any backyard barbecue.
