The milk produced by the cows that grow up in the sun-drenched and salty sea countryside of Syros is beloved and sought after for its taste. This is the main secret for the unique authentic taste and quality of the products of Tyrosyra…
SAN MICHALI PDO CHEESE OF SYROS
San Michalis, one of the most emblematic and exquisite cheeses in Greece and beyond. San Michalis is a PDO cheese, which means that it is produced from pasteurized Syrian cow's milk which is collected, under very strict conditions, from selected herds of cows on the island that by consuming the herbs that grow in the arid soil of the place, bind their aromas and they add them to the milk. Perhaps its most important secret is hidden in the maturation time, which lasts from 4 to 8 months.
Frangosyriani, a very special cheese, mainly from cow's milk with the addition of a minimum of goat's and sheep's milk, which is produced in limited quantities. Based on the traditional recipe, the gruyere matures for at least three months in ideal conditions, and you can find it on the shelves even in an aged form of up to 8 months.
