• 1 pound kasseri, graviera, or kefalotiri
  • cheese
  • Cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) clarified melted butter
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons brandy, heated just until lukewarm (optional)


Cut the cheese into four 1/2-inch slices. Rinse under cold water and shake to remove excess water. Sprinkle cornstarch on a piece of wax paper. Dredge the cheese in the cornstarch until lightly coated. Pace cheese in the freezer for at least 30 minutes or up to several hours before frying.

Heat clarified butter in a large non stick skillet. When it is very hot, almost to the point of smoking, fry the cheese slices on both sides until lightly browned. Sprinkle each slice with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Have the brandy warmed. Ignite it and pour over the cheese. Place the cheese on warm serving plates and serve immediately with a Greek Country Salad and bread.
