Armogalo Samou

Αρμόγαλο Σάμου

A traditional goat cheese from Samos, Armogalo, once made by housewives at home, now in the dairy at Mytilini, is noted for a creamy velvety texture; after the cheese is drained, it is beaten until it has the consistency of a thick yogurt. It has little salt in it, so usually comes vacuum-packed to prolong its shelf life.

It's a versatile cheese, served as a snack on bread, or in pies, or with honey or in pasta dishes
