Kasseri is a traditional, Greek-Turkish cheese made from unpasteurised sheep milk with no more than 20% goat’s milk mixed in. It is a springy-textured, white crust, stringy cheese belonging to the pasta filata family like Provolone or Muenster. To obtain the correct texture and flavour, the cheese needs to be matured for a minimum of four months. It is used as a substitute to the famous mozzarella by many American consumers. The cheese also competes against another famous Greek cheese; Feta. Kasseri is preferred by connoisseurs who like full flavoured cheeses. A bite of Kasseri will enrich your palate with exciting salty flavours and pungent odor. But interestingly, it soon leaves behind a sweet aftertaste. This is because of the high use of sheep’s milk. Pale yellow in colour, Kasseri’s mild, palatable, buttery taste makes it an excellent table cheese. It contains a fat content of anywhere between 25% - 45%. When served at room temperature, it can be paired with omelets, sandwiches or used as a pastry cheese.
