Labaneh

Eddie Bennet | Jan 23, 2001 08:01 AM

I just returned from a vacation in Israel where every morning I had the most delicious cheese called labeneh (also spelled lebbene). It is is an unbelievably soft sheeps milk based cheese that is popular throught the region. It is often in the shape of a ping-pong ball and stored in olive oil. Does anyone know where to find this cheese in Manhattan? I do not recall ever seeing it at Fairway or Ideal Cheese.
Thanks in advance for any help.
