    Juie I was looking for the cheese combination for the cheese man2ouche found it on ur website :) thank you sweety
    keep it up

  13. Julia says:

    Happy to hear from you Joycy! This is the American version of the cheese combination cause it’s hard to find the traditional accawi, and it tastes very good :-) kisses

    Thanks for the cheese recipe, I tried it instead of Akawi cheese (the original cheese for manouche) and it was really good. However, you need to wait 1.5 to 2 hours for the dough to enlarge not 20 minutes, and after you split the dough you should wait an extra 20 minutes.
