  • 1 slice Vlahotiri cheese (per person) about a cm thick
  • 1 tbsp Olympian Farina Plain flour
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 slice Lemon


  • Wet the slice of cheese in water and put it in the flour. Shake to remove the excess flour.
  • In a pan (if you don’t have a saganaki use a frying pan) heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Carefully place the cheese in the pan for 2 minutes or until it is golden brown. Turn the cheese around to fry the other side the same way.
  • When ready, serve it hot with a slice of lemon. Some people also drizzle balsamic vinegar on top too.
