- Pastourma or pastırmaor basturma, is a highly seasoned, air-dried curedbeef that is part of Armenian, Bulgarian, Greek, Turkish, Syrian, Egyptian cuisines.
- Kasseri cheese is a medium-hard yellow cheese made from pasteurised or unpasteurized sheep milk and at most 20% goat’s milk.
- Manouri cheese is a Greek semi-soft, fresh white cheese made from goat or sheep milk as a by-product following the production of feta. It is produced primarily in Thessalia and Macedonia in central and northern Greece. Manouri has about 36-38% fat, but only 0.8% salt content, making it much less salty than feta. It is used in salads, pastries, or as a dessert cheese. It can be substituted for cream cheese in dishes such as cheesecake.
- Take each slice of pastourma and remove the brown spicy paste all around it. This paste gives the special aroma and flavor to the meat. But as it is pretty intense, it’s preferable to remove it.
