Sorry FizzFizz, No - and I've looked.....and I haven't seen it in Tarbes or Lannemezan either, although Aldi in Lannemezan may be worth checking as Aldi changes their stock regularly. 

But I did find a site that sells it online - I haven't bought any yet but here's the link:


No good if you need it right now I know but maybe for next time!

Re the link by  ‘bretonne – Brittany’ – we have bought ‘Salakis - ’Fromage à Griller’ from the new Leclerc,  Landorthe [east of St. Gaudens] and either Super U, Gourdan Poligan or Carrefour market in Montréjeau .

How about having a go at making it? Never done it but I might give it a go as I've never found it either!

I'm a big Halloumi fan (and luckliy have a box full in the freezer) but have been assured by numerous friends that the Salakis 'Grilling Cheese' is a very good substitute. Apparently available in many supermarkets (near the other greek cheses).

Hi Anne,

Is your Halloumi made in Cyprus using only sheep and goat milk?

Halloumi was created in Cyprus and originally a mixture of sheep and goat milk only.  Cyprus is asking for the name Halloumi to be registered within the E.U.  There is a hold-up with the registration due to their modern method of adding cow’s milk.  Until that is resolved, anyone can call their product Halloumi.  Possibly Salakis are thinking ahead and calling it ‘Grilling cheese’, so they don’t have problems if and when the name becomes registered.  Theirs is made with sheep and cow’s milk

Mine is from Cyprus - but it's a finite supply and I shall be using the "Grilling Cheese" afterwards - provided it tastes nice. I'm sure you're right that the manufacturers won't want the hassle of a cheese fight!! Who would?
