The Gods Must Have Been Hungry

In Greek mythology the benevolent God, Aristaeus, protector of herdsmen, is credited for teaching mortals the skill of cheese-making.  But perhaps even Aristaeus could not have guessed how successful the Greeks would be with his gift. 

Manouri P.D.O., a semi-soft cheese exclusively made in Central and Western Macedonia and in Thessalia, is one of Greece’s most popular traditional cheeses.  Manouri can be produced with a mixture of sheep and/or goat’s milk and cream and the whey left over from Feta production.  It is rindless, like Feta, but creamier and less salty and is ultra snow-white in color with an extremely smooth surface.  Manouri is known for its unique, clean and fresh milky taste with a slightly lemony finish.  Its melt-in-your-mouth texture is reminiscent of a light cheesecake.  In fact, Manouri is a great substitute for cream cheese in cheesecake recipes.

Like all traditional Mevgal Greek cheeses, Manouri P.D.O. is made with the freshest milk available in Greece.  In this case: pasteurized sheep’s milk.  and pairs well with dry red wine.

Mevgal Manouri P.D.O. is a luscious Mediterranean delight that is truly heavenly.

Application: Mevgal Manouri is excellent for use in traditional Greek delicacies such as spanakopita but is perfect for any salad, sandwich, pastry or dessert that calls for a sweet, rich cheese.  Mevgal Manouri is also exceptionally delicious as an eating cheese with a dense enough texture to slice into beautiful rounds.  Drizzled with honey, Mevgal Manouri makes a fresh breakfast dish or the perfect ending to lunch or dinner.
 
Pairing: A wonderful Pinot Noir or a Wheatwine ale will complement Manouri.
