Chiote Kopanisti

Kopanisti is a type of white, paste-like cheese made mainly in Cyclades. The most famous Kopanisti producer is Mykonos.

Our neighbourhood grocery shop happened to have Kopanisti from Chios and we decided to try. Just to be clear, Chios is in North Aegean and not in Cyclades.


It is a very strong cheese. Salty, pepperly, tangy and above all, stinky. It has something in common with blue cheeses, but this one definitely is stronger.

I wander if all the kopanistis are as strong as this one.
