Manouri is a traditional PDO cheese from Greece, which is produced from 100% Greek sheep and goat milk. It belongs to the category of whey cheeses and is produced in Greece since antiquity.
It is a soft cheese with white color and creamy texture. It has a sweet and mild taste and a distinctive aroma. It is thought as “the most fine traditional whey cheese in Greece” by the “National Greek Milk Commission”.
Manouri is mostly served as a dessert accompanied by fruit, honey and nuts. It can be served plain, but it can also accompany traditional Greek foods as “mousaka”, stuffed vegetables, green beans and many others.
Manouri can also be used in salads, pies and sweets.
