    I cannot seem to get halloumi cheese in france, and miss it in a number of vegetarian dishes.

    I’m doing a presentation at school on cheesemaking, and I wanted to have some opinions so I could form a bar graph. Just say any type of cheese you like.

    I moved to America (NY) six months ago. Recently I’m having hard time getting rid of my craving for Halloumi cheese, but I can’t remember having ever seen it sold in local supermarkets. Anyone knows where to buy it? Thanks a lot!

    I need a cheese that is diced and will hold its shape after being in the oven, unlike a cheese that will melt and stay melted

    I ate a savory pie once and it had diced cheese in it with cranberries, apples, and pork among other things but the chef wouldn’t tell me what it was, I’m very curious as to what it is. I tried googling it but to no avail.. please help!

    My usual daily diet:

    Breakfast: berries, peaches, natural yoghurt, seeds, oats

    Lunch: spinach and rocket salad with griddled mushroom, red onion, cherry tomatoes, avocado and beetroot with halloumi cheese (i generally change the vegetables according to how i feel, sometimes i combine with cous cous or put filling in a wrap)

    Dinner: this is where I usually fail and go for something unhealthy.

    I am trying to lose weight so what would be some tasty vegetarian dinner ideas for me?

    Please help! X

    I have overheard girls talking on multiple occasions about how they barely eat meat. What do they eat then??? I can see how this may seem like a dumb question, but I typically eat a lot of sandwiches (that have lunch meat), or chicken, etc. Most meals I eat tend to have meat as the main entree. If I don’t eat meat, I’m eating a salad or maybe a cheese pizza.

    So what I’m wondering is what do people eat on a regular basis who don’t eat much meat.

    Do you fry the mushroom first? do you grill the halloumi cheese and then put it on top of the burger? I haven’t got a clue!!

    Tonight, I am making vegetable and halloumi cheese skewers for tea. What would be good to put them with? I’d like something unusual, but substansial and possibly healthy.

    Where can I find Halloumi cheese in Chicago other than whole foods?

    I love…port wine cheddar, havarti, mozzarella (fior di latte), aged swiss (emmental), mascarpone, smoked gouda, parrano, gubbean farmhouse, brie, piave, kenafa, halloumi (cow milk only), coolea, roquetfort, muenster, baladi, raclette, caboc, sbrinz, cream cheese, and feta. What are your favorite types of cheese?

    We’re back from our holidays in Cyprus. Halloumi Cheese is so nice. Do you know a supermarket that sells it?

    or can you recommend another cheese that doesn’t melt easily or something else I could stuff the bacon with. I know you can use baby sausages but I’m using them for something else.

    I live in Cobb county, but I can get to the DeKalb Farmer’s Market which I’m sure has it…. any place closer to the NW side of town?

    With the curry being the national dish, the amount of Indian female presnters on TV, Churches converted to Mosques, pubs and everything Garma Masala, Cumin seeds, it seems that we are now not so last of the Summer Wine but Goodness Gracious me. WIth the call of prayer now audible where once Chruch bells rang and Halal butchers replacing Dewhurst?
