The Other Greek Cheese Taking Off in New Zealand
Greek cheese is more than just Feta. Halloumi, a semi-hard, unripened brined cheese from Cyprus, is gaining popularity in New Zealand, thanks to the Matsis family and their cheesemaking chops.
The duo, of Greek heritage, told TV ONE's Breakfast they think the squeaky cheese still has scope to become more popular.
"It's like feta was when it started out, and now feta is a staple product. I'm not saying halloumi will be a staple product, but I think a lot of people will know what it is in a further 5-10 years", he said.
