Valbreso Feta Cheese
Two 2lb pieces (Approx. 4lbs total).
This 100% sheep’s milk feta is actually made from milk used in the production of Roquefort, the famous French blue cheese. Feta is a white, moist, crumbly cheese with a creamy, salty flavor often associated with Greece and Greek food. French feta cheese tends to be milder than its Greek counterparts.
Feta should be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container covered with its brine for the longest shelf life.
RECIPES & TIPS
Should the feta be too salty out of the package, wash off some of the surface brine with cold water. Feta is extremely popular as a salad topping, and often paired with Greek olives.
Feta softens, but does not melt when cooked. It is delicious hot (broiled or grilled), especially drizzled with a fruity extra-virgin olive oil. It can also be made into phyllo dough enclosed spanakopita.
