Taste of Haloumi

Posted June 3, 2010 by Jimmy Fowler in Blotch

As this week’s ”Eats” review indicates, Terra Mediterranean Grill served some of the best Greek and Middle Eastern food I’ve had in a while. On the menu I discovered a fantastically firm white cheese that’s popular around the Mediterranean – haloumi. This sheep and goat’s milk creation originated on the island of Cyprus. Terra’s appetizer version is pan-seared with olive oil – the result was rich, salty, and vaguely reminded me of a cheesy flat bread or griddle cake. According to this search page, haloumi is a popular ingredient in off-beat grilled cheese sandwiches with various veggie toppings – an idea I plan to try as soon as my fingers lift from this keyboard.
