Fantastic!!! I tried this using both a stainless steel and dark, non-stick pan. The non-stick worked much better, creating a very delicate and even crisp golden crust. In stainless steel this took a long time to color and then once it started, the cheese began to burn almost immediately. My gal pals have added this to the "must haves" for every get together.



absolutely fabulous!!! i cut mine into slabs about 1/2 inch thick as this cheese gets such a beautiful crust as it is fries, keep in mind it doesn't melt when fried, it softens. i find it nicer in the slabs because there is more crust!!! lol!!! had to have shipped from n.y.c. to find!!! no where, anywhere near, where i live had, has or even serves this cheese...most hadn't heard of it!!! it was worth having sent to my home however and i will continue to do so!!! i had to really look to find this cheese looking first around home then at the greek resturants and gourmet shops 3 counties away then finally the internet and i have to say it was worth it!!!!!! p.s. haven't ever given 5 stars and i'm not sure y i haven't but this was close!!



DELISH. I had never used Halloumi before. I love the texture and versatility. I am will surely be making this again. Great with a Greek salad.
