A big claim, like a Cypriot, but believe you me, the final Halloumi that I created looks just like the ones the old Yiayia from Cyprus made in the video that I crafted the recipe from. Hopefully it tastes like the real thing as well.
Yes my friends, this recipe is an original creation by yours truly, following that ancient tradition of Halloumi /Helim cheese makers of Cyprus. This Mediterranean island is where this cheese originates.
If you want to learn more about this cheese, how I created it, then pop on over to my post at Little Green Cheese titled “How to Make Halloumi“.
While you are there you can watch the video tutorial and copy the recipe to give it a go at home.
This cheese is so easy to make, and tastes like no other, especially when fried in a little olive oil. Delicious.
Looking forward to breaking this out at my next family barbeque! Opa!
