Cyprus Country Information
Cyprus has a long association with Greece, and the majority of Cypriots not only speak Greek, but are ethnically Greek, and share a common culture with Greece.
As you might therefore expect, Cypriot cuisine has much in common Greek cuisine, although it also has unique features of its own. Freshness is very important in Cypriot food - and the cuisine also shows influences from Turkey, and further afield, reflecting the island's unique positon at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
One particular food that is indigenous to Cyprus is halloumi. Halloumi is a cheese with salty flavor, similar in texture to mozzarella, traditionally made using a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk, although nowadays cow's milk is sometimes used as well, especially when producing halloumi in industrial production. Halloumi is often garnished with mint, and is frequented fried or grilled. Perhaps the most popular Cypriot dish with halloumi is halloumi and lounza which is simply halloumi grilled with either a slice of smoked pork or a lamb sausage.
