Because of Greece's less-than-fertile terrain, most of its cheeses are made from sheep's milk. Feta is, of course, the best-known Greek cheese, but fresh sheep's milk cheeses are common, as well. One of the most common of these ricotta-style cheeses is Myzithra. It has a much more interesting flavor and texture than most of the ricotta available in this country. The flavor is rather nutty, and the texture is cottony and drier than ricotta. This cheese works wonderfully in cooking, especially blended into pasta dishes. Our version of Myzithra is actually the pressed and dried version. It is similar to an Italian ricotta salata and is a popular grating cheese in Greece. The cheese is quite crumbly and salty, so a little bit can add a lot of flavor to your dishes.
  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 1.7 lb. form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the pound.

The best garnishing cheese ever made.
We love this cheese with a tiny bit of browned butter on broccoli, asparagus, just about any cooked green veggie. Also use some with browned butter over spaghetti and duplicate what you can order at the Spaghetti Factory restaurant for a light, tasty topping replacing heavy sauces.

Myzithra cheese
Just as I remember. I lived in Spokane, WA and always could find Myzithra in any grocery store. Since moving to Maine, I can't find it anywhere. It's the best cheese when putting brown butter over pasta and then grating Myzithra over it. With Maine ( ) would carry it. These farmers & fishermen don't know what their missing.

SALTY!
This cheese was so salty I had to spit it out, it'd make a good seasoning though.

Awesome!
Awesome,great cheese. I love it grated over steamed broccoli. I placed my order on a Sunday night and was using it for dinner Tuesday evening. I was worried about shipping and staying at proper temp, no problems. Cheese was delivered cold and fresh. Very pleased!
