Haloumi is a semi-hard, salty, and scrumptious cheese, which is fantastic grilled or fried. It is made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk. We call it the squeaky cheese because it makes a squeak when you cut it. This combination of salty and sweet makes for an amazing fresh flavour sensation and is best served while the cheese is still warm.
