Sfela cheese from Messinia PDO
The Sfela Chesse of Messinia from the southern Peloponnese is also called ‘the cheese of fire’ because it is spicy, salty and slightly sour to the taste. A medium hard, white brine cheese, in oblong pieces, it has a full body with a few holes. It is a Protected Designation of Origin product and made in Messinia from sheep or goat’s milk or a mixture of both. The cheese is a good starter and opens the appetite.
