Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgundy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries. –

Today’s NEW cheese arrival waiting to be sliced and packaged…
Feta Cheese PDO
We are very excited about the arrival of a fresh feta made from goat and sheep’s milk. Aged in wooden barrels, this Feta has special PDO status which ensures that it has been created and produced in Greece using traditional methods. Most Feta one finds in supermarkets comes prepackaged, however, this special Feta has been delivered to us in one large block that we will soon be slicing and packaging ourselves just in time for the weekend.
Feta’s salty and tangy qualities come from the brine that is used to make it, causing it to be a lovely addition to all sorts of recipes (the above Grilled Corn Pasta Salad being one such recipe). In Greece you’ll most often find Feta served in a traditional salad involving tomatoes on the vine, cucumbers, red onion, Kalamata olives, Greek Olive Oil and oregano – so refreshing!
Beet Salad with Spinach and Feta
Another lovely salad would be to arrange spinach leaves on 4 salad plates and top them with diced beets (we suggest Cafiti’s), crispy crumbled bacon, red onion, and pecans or walnuts. Top with Feta and a drizzle of Vinaigrette. Mmm…very tasty.
