Award-winning Olympus Halloumi cheese is a mild, delicious, firm cheese, that holds its shape well when grilled and yet remains ‘squeaky’ soft on the inside.
We make our signature halloumi to a traditional Cypriot method.
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 rectangular portions and heat it. lt’s then hand-sprinkled with mint, folded by hand and placed in a light brine for 24 hours before packaging in either brine or small vacuum-packed portions.
Olympus 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 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, salt and mint.
