Made from goat’s and sheep’s milk, feta is one of the most famous cheeses. It’s known for its full-flavored tanginess, making it a classic in a cheese lover’s home. Whether you serve it with herbs or balsamic vinegar, citrus or watermelon, feta’s flavor might be specific, but its usage is incredibly versatile.
The Way the Feta Crumbles
A one-ounce serving of feta will cover 14% of your recommended daily calcium intake.
Not a Wedge of Cheese
The word feta is derived from the Ancient Greek word pheta, meaning slice.
Age Is Just a Flavor
It can take three months or more for feta to fully age, in a combination of refrigerated and warm temperatures.
