Halloumi is a Cypriot firm, brined, slightly springy white cheese, traditionally made from a mixture of goat and sheep milk, although these days cow’s milk is also used. Its texture is similar to that of mozzarella or thick feta, except that it has a strong, salty flavour imbibed from the brine preserve. Cooking the Halloumi removes all its saltiness and empowers it with a creamy texture. Aphrodite Haloumi is a cooked stretched curd cheese made using traditional methods and is made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk. Selected by Will Studd, the cheese has a mellow, salty and tangy flavour while the texture is springy. After grilling the cheese, it forms a brown crust due to high fat sheep's milk and elastic texture due to goat's milk. Since the cheese has a high melting point, it retains its shape and flavour after cooking.
