Second Thursday Cheese Sampling: Halloumi

July 9, 2015 - 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Potsdam Co-op - 24 Elm St. Potsdam

This traditional white cheese of Cyprus has been produced on that island for centuries. Although produced today in modern factories, it is done so with great respect to tradition. It is a rindless cheese prepared from a mixture of sheep, goat, and sometimes cow's milk, rolled in mint and soaked in brine which keeps it fresh and flavorful for long periods of time - even in hot climates. This fascinating cheese is ideal for grilling, frying, and barbecuing because its higher than normal melting point allows it to retain its shape and texture. Pair Halloumi with Sauvignon Blanc or dry rose, light red, or sparkling wines. Suggestions: Taste traditional Halloumi fresh, add it to cooked dishes, or include it in salads. Use it to accompany cold fruit, especially watermelon, serve it with a slice of smoked pork, or stir fry it and add it to pasta with cherry tomatoes and greens. Halloumi is especially suitable for omelettes and is ideal for inclusion in grilled vegetable kabobs.
