Did you know?

The word ” halumi” itself is derived from the Coptic word for cheese, halum . When it is usually associated with Cyprus, it is because it was popularized within the “Byzantine Empire” precisely as a Cypriot specialty.
How to grill halloumi
The consistency of halloumi is a bit rubbery, and it melts very late. But do not be intimidated, it is good to chew and after a round on the grill it gets a delicious crispy crust. All you have to do is cut centimeter-thick slices of halloumi that you brush with oil or butter (for rich aroma) and let fry on the grill until they are fine and golden. Remember to serve halloumi while it is still hot, that is – straight from the grill.
