Mizithra or Myzithra is an old Greek cheese and similar to an Italian Ricotta cheese, but a lot dryer. Made from sheep's milk, the flavor is more pronounced than the ricotta: rather nutty and salty.
This Greek cheese has a very dry and crumbly texture; it is very easy to cut and grate, you can almost grate it with a knife or fork.
This cheese works wonderfully blended into pasta dishes.
We hand-cut and wrap the cheese in pieces of 1 pound (cut in one or two pieces) and you can buy the entire cheese (approximately 1.5 pounds).
Please note that entire forms may vary slightly in total weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the entire form that you will receive.
Ingredients: pasteurized sheep's milk and cream, whey and salt.
