Savina Tan-Nar Cheese – Tal-Milord



Tal-Milord – a corrupted Maltese word meaning “My Lord”. is title was conferred upon noble English gentlemen by their waiting staff and has since become a common Maltese word and family nickname. The cheese-making method used for this artisan specialty is Tan-Nar, which for centuries was practiced by master cheese-makers in their Imhazen tan-Nar, warehouses located in various rural villages in Malta & Gozo. These craft workshops were equipped with sizeable vats and stoves where the curd was heated to set temperatures, following precise, age-tested recipes and processes. All this was being carried out when cooking in households was still done over stone stoves fueled with dried shrubbery and wood!

Tal-Milord is a semi-hard cheese that is made from a mixture of pasteurized sheep and goat’s milk and is aged for a minimum of 16 weeks. e texture of this cheese is firm enough to slice or cube it, and has a taste that is rich and creamy on the palate. It has a moist golden yellow rind and a creamy hue inside. e end result of this artisan Maltese cheese is a symphony of nutty flavours with a rich buttery finish; making it a true noble delicacy for connoisseurs!
