Kefalograviera is a hard, salty cheese that originated in Greece. It is made from sheep's milk or a combination of sheep's and goat's milk. The cheese has a pale yellow color and a firm texture with small, round holes throughout.
Kefalograviera has a distinctive flavor that is both nutty and salty, with a slightly sweet aftertaste. It is often used in cooking and is particularly well-suited for grilling, as it melts well and forms a crispy crust when cooked.
This cheese is often compared to the more well-known Greek cheese, Kefalotyri, which is also made from sheep's milk and has a similar texture and flavor. However, kefalograviera is slightly milder and creamier than Kefalotyri.
Kefalograviera is a popular cheese in Greece and is often used in traditional dishes such as saganaki (a fried cheese dish), pastitsio (a Greek-style lasagna), and moussaka (a dish made with eggplant and ground meat). It can also be enjoyed on its own or paired with olives, cured meats, and wine.
