Every month we will bring you Cheese news from Foxholes Farm with some special Cheeses from our deli counter, offering advice, special offers and tastings to all our customers. , this month we have some amazing cheeses great for salads and grilling.
Feta is a brined curd white cheese made from a mixture of sheep and goat’s milk. Similar brined white cheeses are often made partly or wholly of cow’s milk, and they are also sometimes called feta. Feta is remarkably versatile and can be used practically anywhere that calls for a salty cheese. Crumble over salads and soups, toss it with roasted vegetables, rice and pasta, or use in pies. Feta can also be served on its own with a plate of olives, peppers, olive oil, and fresh flatbread.
Halloumi is a semi-soft cheese made from unpasteurised sheep and goats milk. Many people also like halloumi that has been aged and kept in its brine, which makes this cheese much drier, much stronger and much saltier. Our mild version is generally used raw in salads or delicious grilled on skewers on the bbq. Available from from our deli counter.
