Kasseri is the melting cheese of Greece. Since Mt. Vikos Kasseri is made only in the months when the milk is creamy and sweet, the cheese is consistently rich. Made from fresh milk of free-ranging sheep and goats. Mt. Vikos Kasseri is made in months when grasses are green, for a sweet flavor. No antibiotics are given the animals. Mt. Vikos contains no preservatives, additives, or calcium chloride.
After the curd is warmed, it is hand stretched and kneaded and then put into special molds. The cheese rounds are placed in special aging rooms for six months. The flavor continues to develop and improve even after it has been packed. When left at room temperature for a few hours, the cheese becomes buttery and tastes great. Melted Mt. Vikos Kasseri has more flavor than most cheeses in the world. Kasseri is a great table cheese, excellent melted in sandwiches, omelets, pizza, and casseroles, and grated onto vegetables and/or pasta.
