Doré-Mi is a semi-soft cheese that melts slightly, but largely retains its firmness when grilled or pan fried. Inspired by the Halloumi-style cheeses from the Mediterranean shores of Cyprus, Doré-Mi is subtly enriched with oriental spices and aromatic flavourings. Similar to a Halloumi, it is a slightly springy, moist and homogenous. This rindless cheese is offered in multiple varieties: Plain, Mediterranean spices, Indian spices and Jalapeño.

Since it can be cut, cubed or sliced, Doré-Mi is ideal for brochettes and raclette. A versatile cheese, it can be pan-seared or grilled on a barbecue, eaten as a snack or served in a salad.

Doré-Mi has won many awards in its category including bronze at 2014 International Cheese Awards.
