Touloumotyri – Greek Cheese

Touloumotyri is a goat cheese made throughout the Aegean. It is a moist cheese that takes its name from the goat hide (touloumi) in which it is ripened and stored. It is similar in texture to feta but sweeter because of the way it is cured. It is one of the oldest varieties of cheese in Greece.
