ABOUT HALLOUMI

Halloumi is an entirely Cyprus cheese which it is made in our island for centuries. It is made from a blend of sheep’s and goat’s milk or sheep’s, goat’s and cow’s milk. Halloumi in Aramaic means “dreamy”. Halloumi used to be stored in sealed clay or glass pots along with salted whey. It was very important for the pot to be sealed properly in order to avoid unpleasant situations. Nowadays halloumi is usually sold in vacuum packages but it can also be found in plastic jars with salted whey (this kind of halloumi is more hard and salty). It is probably the only cheese that can be cooked in such a variety of ways or eaten as it is!
