Yoghurt cheese Recipe

Ingredients for people

  • Greek yogurt : 500 g
  • Maldon salt : 10 g
Method
  • 1

    Grind the salt fine and whisk into the yoghurt. Place a j cloth or muslin cloth in a sieve or colander set over a bowl. Spoon the yoghurt into this and gather the sides of the cloth over the top to cover. Leave for 2-3 hours for a soft set, or overnight for a firmer, crumblier cheese. Turn out onto a plate and serve.

Chef's tip

«Your cheese will look beautiful drizzled with olive oil and scattered with tiny herb tops (thyme and mint are my favourites), and maybe some honey as well.»
