Katiki

A Greek, cheesy & creamy delight

Katiki is a white and light, soft, fresh cheese, with a fine, smooth texture, a pleasant aroma and a refreshing, slightly sour taste that actually tastes more like a mousse.

It is made from goat’s milk or a combination of goat’s and sheep’s milk and it has a salt content of 1% that makes it suitable for diet and a balanced, low fat nutrition.

Katiki is a genuine Greek product of protected designation of origin (PDO), produced only locally in the prefecture of Phokida following a traditional recipe that even today makes it unique.

Serve katiki with bread or as a dip with appetizers and mezes (it goes particularly well with white wine), with fruits, and in recipes calling for light cheese stuffing like cheesecakes or as a sauce for pita bread and souvlaki.
