Kourouniotis Grated Mizithra 300g-400g

Proud dairy farmer Vasilis Kourouniotis lives and breathes cheese on his farm in the mountainous village of Elliniko in the centre of the Peloponnese. Sloping into the river Lousios, his traditional, small-scale dairy is powered by the incredible fresh and fragrant sheep’s and goat's milk who feast on the abundant surrounding hills of Arcadia. Mizithra is a traditional and mature Greek whey cheese, similar to an aged ricotta, and this grated and mildly tangy and salty version is a wonderful alternative to Parmesan, Ricotta Romano or ricotta salata in most dishes. Beautifully made in the simplest way possible, milk is brought to a slow boil then curdled by adding rennet or whey from a previous batch.

Kourouniotis, Elliniko, Peloponnese

Vasilis Kourouniotis, after many years of working alongside famous cheese makers from Arcadia, set up his own traditional dairy in Elliniko and began producing a range of local cheeses from goat and sheeps’ milk. Based in the centre of the Peloponnese, Kourouniotis has access to traditional, small-scale dairy from the surrounding mountains of Arcadia. The feta is produced daily by hand and then aged in beech barrels for at least 3 months, culminating in a distinctive, rich, salty, and crumbly feta.
