Named for the famous Greek dishes that call for this style of cheese to be pan fried, Saganaki is a cow’s milk version of Greek Kefalotyri that rouses the opa in all of us.
In Greek, Saganaki translates to “little frying pan,” referring to the cheese’s most popular use: fried up in a small pan until bubbly and served with a splash of lemon juice, pinch of pepper and warm, inviting bread. For added excitement, Saganaki is often flambéed just prior to presenting the finished dish, then extinguished with the lemon juice to shouts of “Opa!”
Known for its firm texture and salty taste, Saganaki Kefalotyri is great for grating and lends itself perfectly to adding flavor to anything from pasta to cooked vegetables. It is also much used in another famous Greek recipe, Spanakopita. Additionally, Atalanta Saganaki is Halal certified.
Application: Make a delicious appetizer by lightly breading and frying the cheese and topping with a luxurious sauce of lemon, butter and capers.
Pairing:A bold Riesling or a crisp American Lager would balance the salty tones of the cheese.
