Marinated Feta - Tolpuddle Goat Cheese and Farm Foods.

Marinated Feta - Tolpuddle Goat Cheese and Farm Foods.

Another couple of excursions for this cheese. Feta is not commonly a platter cheese, and is usually served in salads or cooked in other dishes.

So we did both.

First we added a few cubes to the classic Persian breakfast meal of Shakshuka (a spiced tomato sauce with onions, feta, and eggs poached in the sauce). Unlike most fetas that harden up under such treatment, this one melted into streams of delicious feta goo - a magic experience!

Then, in the evening, the rest was cubed into a side-salad - and what a magnificent way to boost basic greens! Not as hard or salty as most fetas, this had just enough tooth to give a good sense of having something to bite into, but without being chewy. The mild marinade complemented rather than competed with the tang.

All-in-all a superior example of a widely implemented cheese, and worth trying if you can find it.

Tolpuddle cheese are only available via limited regional retailers, farmers' markets, and by mail-order within Victoria.
