Aphrodite Goat Milk Halloumi 250g – Will Studd
Aphrodite Halloumi is a stretched curd cheese made for grilling or pan frying. Selected by Will Studd for its high quality and its genuine reflection of place, Aphrodite Halloumi is produced in a small artisan family dairy where each pocket-shaped cheese is hand crafted using time-honoured techniques.
This hand stretched halloumi is made in Cyprus to a traditional recipe formulated millennia ago by Cypriot shepherds to preserve the island’s seasonal flush of fresh milk. Hand folded with mint leaves, it has a distinct Mediterranean flavour – salty with a hint of lemon.
A little history
During the cooler months Halloumi was traditionally made using a combination of goat’s and ewe’s milk, the ratio varying according to region and the season. In the hotter summer months when ewe’s milk was unavailable Halloumi was produced in small village dairies using only goat’s milk. This 100% pure goats milk cheese has both piquancy and milky flavours.
