Haloumi, a cheese often made with sheep and goat milk, originates from Cyprus and has been eaten in many Middle East countries for thousands of years. This stretchy-salty cheese is often enjoyed as an addition to the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines.

However, more recently, Haloumi cheese has been making a scene and is becoming a more and more popular ingredient in a variety of dishes. Whether grilled, fried or eaten straight from the packet, haloumi doesn’t melt and manages to stay in shape; and the fresh, satisfying salty taste it lends to dishes is the reason it’s become a mainstay in Australian tables. Also, it’s relatively easy to make!
