  • Hi Millie…yes …gbejna in Arabic is the word for 'cheese' and used in that context…particular cheeses probably have different names but I didn't learn them! In Malta they only traditionally make two cheeses I think…gbejna and ricotta…but the use of the word gbejna in Maltese to describe cheeselets is Arabic (as much of Maltese is!). I think that the word 'gobon' may be a derivation of the Arabic gibna..also the word I learned for cheese in North Africa.
