Beyaz Peynir, or “White Cheese”, is one of the most popular cheeses in Turkey and an inextricable part of daily life. With a taste and texture similar to Feta, Tahsildaroglu Full Fat White Cheese is made exclusively from the milk of cows grazing in the region of Ezine, renowned for its terrain and climate. To give our cheese its classic medium-density crumbly texture, sour tang and salty finish, we age and marinate our cheese in brine, using a recipe passed down across generations. Traditionally served at breakfast with tomatoes, cucumbers, olives and olive oil, Tahsildaroglu Full Fat White Cheese is also a classic filling for Turkish savory and sweet phyllo-filled pastries. Our cheese is “must” for Shepherd’s Salad, the Turkish equivalent to a Greek Salad. For a sumptuous summer salad, toss our White Cheese with arugula, freshly cut strawberries, candied pecans and olives. Or use our cheese to impart tangy bold flavor to omelets, flatbreads, dips and spreads. Tahsildaroglu Full Fat White Cheese is rich in probiotics, calcium and protein, and low in fat.
Simit are a popular Turkish street food. Instead of being boiled like a bagel, the twisted circles of dough get a quick dip in diluted grape molasses before dredging in sesame seeds. The result is a crisp exterior and a light, delicate, and tender interior. It is the best breakfast in this world when accompanied by cheese, tomatoes, cucumber and a cup of tea. Although it's one of the best street foods in the country, it's possible to make it at home too.
