Epire Feta DOP -200g

$73

Feta cheese is a brined curd cheese made from Sheep’s milk. Originally hailing from Greece, Feta is Greek means “slice”, Feta is packaged and sold in blocks. The crumbly bright coloured cheese is also made with a mixture of sheep and goat’s milk. Origins of Feta could be traced back to 8th Century B.C Greece. Homer’s Odyssey, in the section of Polyphemus’s cave, speaks in length about churning cheese out of goats milk. Making cheese out of goat’s milk was a popular tradition in Greek villages, locals would employ various techniques and technologies to do so. Traditionally and legally within Europe, feta is produced using only whole sheep’s milk, or a blend of sheep’s and goat’s and sometimes cow’s milk. The legal limit is maximum of 30% goat’s milk. Most producers have now started using pasteurized milk which has a little salty and tangy flavor. The grainy, aged cheese is popularly used in salads, pastries, omelettes, sandwiches or as a garnish on meat and vegetable preparations. Feta is often touted to be a healthier cheese as compared to its other counterparts made wholly of cow’s milk.
