Insalata Caprese, which means Salad made in Capri, the region of Campania, in Italy, is a simple salad using plum tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, olive oil and seasoning. I made a twist on this salad using halloumi and mint as well, both in the form of pesto and fresh mint. I wanted to share this salad […]

I think a Greek blog would be incomplete without introducing some of the Greek cheeses. I have written about some of these cheeses in the past but I thought that it would be a good idea to put them all in one post with some recipes.   In the future I shall be updating this post […]

This is a twist to the Cypriot Tyropita recipe I make with halloumi. However, adding new ingredients to it, makes a totally different savory cake. Instead of adding ham and turkey, you can substitute it with bacon which you have to grill or fry before using and discard the fat. Of course, bacon gives a […]

Halloumi is indigenous to Cyprus and is one of a few cheeses made in Cyprus, so as a Cypriot and a food blogger this is something I wanted to try and make myself. Halloumi has been made in Cyprus for hundreds, not to say thousands of years and the recipe was given from mother to […]
