Quick question for Zorzou about cheese

Hi Zorzou,

What is the Greek cheese that can be fried/grilled? In Cyprus we can do that with Halloumi but I had a cheese in Athens cooked the same way. I've tried the usual Greek cheeses suck as Kaseri or Kefalotyri but they are not the ones I'm looking for. Any ideas?

Re: Quick question for Zorzou about cheese

Is it formaella?  A traditional cheese from a village called Arahova and its name is "protected" like feta.  Or it's graviera another cheese cooked this way....

I think it was likely Graviera, made as Saganaki. I need to get hold of some and play around with it.

Oh graviera, its not actually an original greek cheese... Its named after -I think an Italian- village called Gravier and there they make this kind of cheese... so farmers here who make it similarly call it graviera!!
That's only informative, the taste is anyway the same! wink

I'll keep my eyes open for some formaella, not seen any here before but it sounds divine.
