Award-winning Olympus Chef’s Halloumi is a mild, delicious, firm cheese, that holds its shape well when grilled and yet
remains ‘squeaky’ soft on the inside. From pasteurised fresh cow’s milk, we create curds and whey using non-animal
rennet and starter culture. The curd is drained and the whey put aside for making Olympus Ricotta.
We press the curd into a cheese mould and then hand cut it into a chef’s block, cooled and placed in a light before being
packaged in vacuum-packed chef’s portions.
Olympus Chef’s Halloumi is a lower salt product that is ready to serve and ideal for salads. Alternatively, slice it into 5mm slices and pan fry in a non-stick pan or grill until it’s golden-brown. Serve immediately with salad or vegetables.
Why not enjoy Olympus Chef’s Halloumi the Cypriot way by cubing it and mixing it with fresh watermelon in summer?
Halloumi is a very versatile cheese, mainly because it does not melt and is ideal for breakfasts and barbecues.
Olympus Halloumi contains pasteurised cows milk, starter culture, non-animal rennet and salt
