The third cheese is Kasseri
Kasseri is a Greek cheeses made from goat milk.
Kasseri is an outstanding table cheese.
It is creamy gold in color and resilient in texture.
It has a mild, buttery taste with a hint of olive flavor.
The creamy gold-colored kasseri has a natural rind and is usually sold in blocks.
It's delicious plain, grated over hot foods or used in cooking.
Kasseri is the cheese used in the famous Greek dish SAGANAKI,
Here is a picture of the Kasseri
