Kefalotiri is a Greek cheese that is pale yellow in color and has irregular holes. It is a hard cheese made from sheep and goat's milk.

Kefalotiri is generally used as a grating cheese and served on top of cooked dishes. It has a strong flavor and sharp aroma. It is saltier and harder than Kasseri cheese.

The name of the cheese is derived from the Greek word "kefali", meaning head, because it is shaped into the form of a head.

Love the products

The products they carry are the best. I love ordering the block of cheese for when my family brings there kids over to the house they love eating the flaming saganaki and other dishes. All the Greek dishes help keep my family together.

Best Greek Cheese

I now live in Charleston, SC area. I have not been able to find Kefalotiri cheese anywhere around here - not even Whole Foods Market which is surprising. Whole Foods in Mount Pleasant, SC says they would like to get this cheese to sell but have not been able to find a supplier. As I searched online, I found Greek Internet Market. I found Kefalotiri cheese on their website and ordered. It came packaged on dry ice and in a cute little zip up cooler that I can use for other things. It is by far the best Greek cheese for Saganaki, Pastitsio and other Greek dishes that do better with this cheese than the substitutes like mozzarella or parmesan.

perfect cheese for saganaki, firm in texture, held up well in the frying pan, and delicious and creamy taste.
