Amari Cretan Fresh Mizithra (400g)
Amari Fresh Mizithra (400g), a fresh whey cheese known as galomizithra, with a delicately sweet taste produced in Rethymno, Crete.
Amari Fresh Mizithra is a soft, white cheese with a gentle, sweet flavour & a light, creamy texture. It is made with sheep and goat’s milk, exclusively from the Amari region of Rethymno on the island of Crete, using whey from the Amari Graviera cheese production.
Mizithra or Myzithra is one of Crete’s most renowned cheeses and can be found in many local recipes. Fresh Mizithra, also known as galomizithra, is softer & creamier than Amari Savoury Mizithra and has a delicately sweet taste and a particularly soft texture.
Our Amari Fresh Mizithra works in recipes similar to the Italian ricotta and can be added to fillings of pasties and pies, or in a salad dressed with oil and herbs. Ideal served with honey and fresh fruit like pears, figs and grapes.
Mizithra is a very delicate fresh cheese and as such, please be aware that it has a short shelf life. New stock arrives from Greece every other week, please feel free to contact us if you want to check the use by date before ordering.
