WHAT IS HALLOUMI?
Halloumi is a cheese that originates from Cyprus. Traditionally it is made with a blend of goats and sheep milk, however, in countries where it’s difficult to source these milks, it can also be made with cow’s milk.
Halloumi has a distinctive layered texture similar to mozzarella and has a salty flavour due to it being brined in a salt water solution.
The unique characteristic of halloumi is that it does not melt when grilled because of its high melting point.
WHERE TO BUY HALLOUMI CHEESE
Halloumi has grown more popular in Western countries in recent years, and nowadays you’ll find packaged halloumi cheese in specialty cheese sections at most major supermarkets.
In Australia you’ll find it in Coles, Woolworths and Aldi. In America it is commonly found in Trader Joes and Whole Foods. In the UK try your nearest Tesco’s.
If you’re having trouble tracking it down, you can always try a smaller co-op, specialty cheese shops or your local Mediterranean deli.
