One of the greatest things about the World Wide Web is that it allows for fortuitous discoveries to be made in a matter of seconds with just a few keystrokes. This “cheese” happened to be just that for me.
Quick & Easy Mizithra (Greek Ricotta)
I consider myself to be a fairly serious kitchen DIY-er. I enjoy learning about a food’s history and recreating it in my kitchen. But then there’s that whole time thing.
Homemade Traditional Mizithra Cheese
If you’re from the West Coast, you likely know about mizithra cheese from The Old Spaghetti Factory’s browned butter and mizithra cheese pasta (which is really good). What you may not know is that this cheese has a history that goes back thousands of years. That should tell you how easy it is to make if ancient Greeks could do so without modern kitchens!
