Halloumi is a typical speciality cheese from Cyprus. As a result of its elaborate production method, which stops the ripening process, the cheese squeaks when you chew it. This is due to its originality. The cheese is also sprinkled with salt and mint, which give it an aromatic flavour. It offers an excellent alternative to meat and can be prepared in a wide variety of ways. Thanks to its unique consistency, halloumi holds its shape when baked, fried or grilled. Halloumi is made from cow’s, sheep’s and goat’s milk.
