Smile Turkish cheese

Hi. I'm new to this site.
I love Turkey and also love English mature cheddar ... is there a Turkish equivalent or one that comes close?

Re: Turkish cheese

You can get packs of cheddar slices from Migros. they are Pinar brand, they are quite nice but its better to go to the big cheese wagons that go to fruit markets. They will give you bits to try and then you can buy ones that you like. The strong one that I lıke for flavouring foods as we do in UK is Izmir tulum I think. This is a mature cheese, very tasty and ı find it is great in cooking. If you tell them you want something like a mature cheddar they will give you things similar to try. Ask for eski cheddar, they call it old cheese here.

Re: Turkish cheese

Although I like the Turkish cheeses I never found a match for a good strong cheddar. Even in the UK what they class as strong mature leaves a lot to be desired (in my opinion).

Re: Turkish cheese

The best type is eski (old) kaşar, but I have recently found mature cheddar online from a supplier that I use. Problem is that the one that I want is only available in 5kg packets! I am waiting to use up my stock before i order it.

Re: Turkish cheese

Personally, I fınd the Turkısh cheeses totally tasteless.Tulum ıs ok but very salty, Eski (OLD )ıs the next one, other than that Pinar market Cheddar, ıts very mıld, tastes nothıng lıke Cheddar.As Alıson says, the bazaars do cheeses, but you take your lıfe ın your hands wıth them, I trıed ıt once and was ıll for days.The 2 thıngs I have always been told to stay clear of on the bazaar are cheese and the eggs. As have been saıd Mıgros ıs a good source for cheeses, but you pay through the nose.

Re: Turkish cheese

No, never found a real Turkish Cheddar alternative. Some shops around here sell something with the Cheddar name on it, but it has a chemical taste - unpleasant.
Turkish cheese is very "samey" just milder or stronger version of the same thing, with heaps of salt.
Migros do the Cheddar slices, which are OK but expensive. Many imported cheeses in the chillers, but not British, and all expensive.

Me and my friends have all been buying cheese, butter and olives there every week and never had a problem.

Re: Turkish cheese

We always buy the Izmir Tullum cheese from the deli counter at Migros and it is as good, if not better, than the English mature cheddar ... not expensive either and very fresh ... it lasts for weeks but never gets the chance very often with us two! x Angela and Mike in Side x
