Kefalotyri is a Greek cheese. It is very popular in Greece
It is a hard yellow cheese that tastes similar to Gruyere.

Kefalotyri has a salty and sharp flavor; it is perfect for pasta, or just with some white wine.

Kefalotyri's tangy taste and heavy aroma make it a perfect addition to many dishes. Grate over pasta or vegetables, use as garnish to cooked dishes.

Kefalotyri can be eaten as it is, fried in olive oil for a dish called saganaki. It also can be used as a substitute for Romano or Parmesan when making Spanakopita.
