Cook Time:



Mediterranean, Greek

A classic Greek dish that merges the crunchy golden salty  Kefalotryi, the syrupy sweetness of honey, and herbaceous earthy fresh oregano. It's simple but will leave you wanting more.


  • 170g Aphrodite Kefalotyri
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • extra virgin olive oil, for frying
  • 4 sprigs oregano
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ lemon


  1. Rinse the Kefalotyri under cold water then coat with the flour. Shake off any excess flour.
  2. Cover the base of a non-stick frying with the oil and place over medium heat, cook the cheese for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden, adding the oregano sprigs in for the last minute.
  3. Remove the cheese and oregano and clean the pan.
  4. Return the pan to heat with the cheese and oregano, add the honey and lemon and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the honey is bubbling and the cheese is heated through. Squeeze the lemon over the top to serve.
