Made from sheep and goat whey, it has the shape of a small head, is hard in texture and has a strong aromatic taste.
It is used in many traditional savoury and sweet recipes, such as myzithra pies and loukoumades with myzithra. As it is low in fat content it is used as a substitute for other cheeses, e.g. grated over pasta.
