The Joy of Haloumi

I remember the first time I had haloumi. I was astonished that something so delicious could exist without me ever hearing about it before. It was at Moyses, one of my favourite restaurants of all time.


For a while I was intimated by the idea of frying cheese but it’s so good I just had to try. It turns out it’s actually rather easy.

You just need to heat olive oil in a non-stick frying pan until it reaches a high temperature. Add your haloumi (cut 7mm thick). Fry each side until golden brown (about 20 secs per side). Then eat. It is so worth it. Fried cheese!
