Definition: Kefir is a beverage made from cultured milk, with a taste not unlike buttermilk. It has a smooth, creamy consistency and a mild yeasty aroma. It is said to have started with the Russians, but the Turks also claim to have invented it, calling it kief, which loosely translated means "a good feeling."
Pronunciation: keh-FEEHR
Alternate Spellings: keffir
We drank a cold glass of kefir with our cheese burek.
