Chechil cheese in braids

Chechil

Chechil cheese

Chechil is traditional salty and smokey Armenian cheese. It has a very interesting shape of dense strings plated into a braid.

Chechil cheese is very popular in Russia as a beer snack. One cut through the braid gives you a generous amount of tiny pieces of chechil which makes it an easy finger food.  And beer is so refreshing with salty and smokey foods.

Chechil has a low fat content and is considered as diet food (if you give the beers a miss of course :) )
