Amari Cretan Savoury Mizithra (150g)
Amari Savoury Mizithra, an artisan Cretan soft spreadable cheese made with goat & sheep’s milk in the Amari region at Rethymno.
Amari Savoury Mizithra is a soft white cheese made with goat & sheep’s milk in the Amari region at Rethymno of Crete exclusively with milk from local livestock.
Mizithra is one of Crete’s most renowned cheeses widely used in regional recipes and coming in different variations across the Greek island. Our Amari Savoury Mizithra is soft & spreadable with a creamy texture and fresh, milky aromas. It’s the superior quality of the milk coming from herds grazing at the mountain and foothill areas of Crete, an island blessed with rich flora, that gives the Amari Savoury Mizithra its unique taste.
Mizithra has a slightly tangy taste and in Crete is widely used as a salad cheese and in pie fillings in place of feta, which has more fat and is considerably saltier in comparison.
Use on Greek salad instead of feta cheese or to make the Cretan dakos – a mix of barley rusks topped with chopped tomatoes & mizithra cheese, drizzled with copious amount of extra virgin olive oil & garnished with oregano.
Perfect to use in pies or enjoy spread on a slice of sourdough with Greek honey for breakfast.
