mastelo

μαστέλο

Mastelo, a white flavorful, chewy goat cheese from Chios and Tinos, made with cow’s milk and ideal for grilling, not unlike haloumi. Designated PDO (ΠΟΠ).

On Sifnos, however, μαστέλο means both a special clay cooking pot made on the island, and a dish of mutton or kid with suet, red wine and dill, slow baked on vine twigs arranged on the bottom of the pot.
