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 this cheese. If shipping wasn't so much I would order it a lot more. Great price until shipping is added.
Rebekah Auker | Mt. Pleasant, SC | 7/29/2017Best 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.

Service was wonderful and so was the follow through. The Greek dish I make calls for Kefalotri Cheese which no one here heard of. They sent the perfect size and it is delicious.

Anita bozenbury | Fort lauderdale, Florida | 4/23/2012This was my first purchase
I was looking for a greek cheese that I couldnt find here in stores in fort lauderdale, I searched online and found this site, the prices were fair and I decided to take a risk and see how it would go, I ordered 2 days because it was a perishable item and the site reccommended that shipping option. The next day fed ex knocked on my door and I received my order in a box and I opened it to find a stirofoam cooler with my cheese and cold packs inside. I wad very satisified with my order from purchase to delivery and even received a coupon for a future purchase which I would gladly use for my next order. I told my family about it and they will order from your company also. Thanks for making our greek easyer a great one. Evharisto para poli!

Creamiest Kefalotiri around. You can eat it like that with dark bread or crackers, or bake it in olive oil then squeeze juice from a ripe lemon and you will find yourself on the hills of Greece watching the sheep graze on that green fresh grass.
