Kasseri is a traditional, Greek cheese made from sheep's and no more than 20 percent goat's milk. The melting cheese of Greece belongs to the pasta filata family, where the curds are streched and twisted - like Mozzarella and Provolone. Kasseri is therefore often a substitute to those Italian cheeses.

A bite of Kasseri will offer you salty flavors with a sweet aftertaste, and a slight pungent odor. The Greek cheese is pale yellowish-brown in color and it rather plain to look at.

Kasseri is perfect melted into quiches and egg dishes and atop pizza. Pop some flavor into your side casseroles. When entertaining, we suggest pairing with a dry crisp white.

Ingredients:pasteurized sheep and goat's milk, sea salt, bacterial culture, rennet.
