Anthotiro is a traditional, unpasteurised, cheese made from ewes’ and/or goats whey with the addition of milk. It has various sizes and its shape is usually a truncated cone or ball. It is basically a salted and matured Mizithra
The cheese is dry and white and has no rind. It is eaten for breakfast with honey and fruit, in savoury dishes with oil, tomato and wild herbs, ideal for spaghetti dishes. This cheese has been made for centuries. Its name ("flower cheese") comes from the aroma and flavour, carrying the hint of wild herbs. Smooth, hard and moist, the cheese has a fine, crumbly texture. The pure white interior is delicate, and the famed, floral flavour has a smoky tang.
