    Details

    Lighvan (Persian: لیقوان‎‎) is a semi hard feta cheese in brine traditionally made in Iran. Having a sharp and unique flavor, and a porous surface, the cheese is produced in a very special way from sheep’s milk. The name comes from Liqhvan, a village in East Azerbaijan, where it has traditionally been made. The milk is coagulated with natural yeasts, then the curd is packed into triangular cloth bags and is allowed to drain thoroughly. The triangular blocks of cheese, which are about 20 cm (7.9 in) thick, are removed from the bag and put in an earthenware clay pot. Then they are added to brine, and are left for few days to age. The cheese is usually served for breakfast with fresh/hot bread. Lighvan cheese is extremely popular in Iran. Consumption of this cheese along with Bulgharian cheese make up about 68% of total cheese consumption in Iran.

    I was searching google for feta cheese when I came across Persian Basket's site. Being skeptical at first, I ordered only one can with some Barbari breads, Halva, and Walnuts. I was so happy when the package arrived at my door. The cheese was packed in the ice when I opened the package. After making tea, warming the bread and tasting the cheese, I remembered the taste that I had it the back of my mind for the past 30 years. The taste cam alive.This is a must try.

    For years, I would eat feta cheese and long the taste of the real lighvan cheese that I ate as a child in Iran. Of course none of them tasted like that!, Till tonight!
    I finally got my wish tonight. This is the most amazing feta cheese ever, and tastes exactly like I remember. I’ll be ordering more soon.
    Thank you Persian baskets for bringing us this treat. (Posted on 10/20/2017)
