This authentic handmade feta is made using artisanal techniques that harken back to a long history of Greek feta. This feta is made of both goat and sheep milk, per Greek tradition, and is aged for 3 months in wooden barrels instead of more common metal tins. Aging a feta in wood is more traditional and imparts a rusticity and authenticity to the cheese.

This feta is complex and rich with a dense, slightly crumbly, creamy texture. The flavor is salty yet creamy, tangy with notes of sweet fresh milk. 

Feta is one of the best cooking cheeses due to its acidity and salt. While other milder cheeses might "disappear" into a dish, the bold tangy salty flavor of feta will be noticeable. Ideal for snacking or cooking, this is a fridge staple that should always be kept on-hand. 

Ingredients:pasteurized sheep and goat's milk
