Braided cheese

Braided cheese (Turkish: Tel peyniri) is a dairy product made from strips of highly elastic cheese wound together in a braid. Turkey, Armenia, Italy, Syria, and many Latin American nations make varieties of braided cheese. Many markets carry braided cheese, especially those that carry specialty cheeses. The cheese is used in a variety of dishes or eaten plain.

Italian mozzarella, Syrian Akawi, and Latin American Asadero are all examples of braided cheese.
