ReMARKable Palate #55: The Cheese and Wine of Cyprus
Tim Mavrelus, the "Halloumi Man" speaks to us about the food products of Cyprus. Halloumi cheese is known worldwide as "the cheese that grills", and Tim describes the process of making Halloumi. He and Aristos Constantine introduce me to Commandaria, an amber colored fortified wine made from the Mavro grape. It gained fame in Europe when Richard the Lionhearted drank it at his wedding in Cyprus, pronouncing it "The wine of kings and the king of wines". We also taste Zivania, a high alcohol spirit distilled from grape must.
We also share some more Sweet Indulgences. Share yours at A Life Much Sweeter.
