thanks max, have decided to do a feta and bacon pasta

I eat it as is with anything:

Antipasto platter: feta, sausages, smoked chicken, tomatoes, boiled eggs, anchovies, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers etc.

Greek salad: tomato, cucumber, red onions or spring onions, olives, feta, drizzle with olive oil.

On bread: Tomato slices and feta with lettuce leaves

or cooked:
Stuffed in canneloni: feta, spinach, eggs

Lasagna: similar to above plus tomato sauce and melting cheese over the top if you like

Generally you can use it in any salad or replace cottage cheese or cream cheese with it in savoury dishes.

I make this too - it's yummy. Try courgette & feta fritters or roast beetroot & feta salad.

For nibbles, try this. We had them for lunch yesterday. A slice of telegraph cucumber, a slice of feta cheese, and a slice of tomato. Very moreish. You could no doubt add any herbs or spices, but they were very tasty as we sat outside enjoying the sun.

Try using it in Cous Cous with other ingredients like fresh parsley, corn, olives, dried tomatos, diced peppers, beans etc.
Use approx 1 tbsp olive oil, juice of 1/2 lemon and sea salt to taste.

what is a good feta to buy. I have had salads with it in, particularly roast pumpkin and feta and it delicious.
BUT my problem is when ever I buy feta it is very sharp tasting.
What variety should I be buying that isn't strong/sharp/salty tasting? Thanks

I always get Buton d'or - but I check carefully i got the cow one not the icky goat one! and not the flavoured ones either.
I don't like the other brands, especially Kapiti.

But that's just me. .

I buy Buton d'or , as well, as it is the only one I like

I like Feta and Spinach pie.
I don't have a 'proper' recipe.
I just mix up a block of feta and a tub of cottage cheese with enough spinach to look good, plus 2 or 3 eggs, cooked onion and nutmeg and pepper.
I bake it in filo or flakey pastry as a pie or make wee triangles/rolls etc.

Feta will always be salty - that's part of its character. You may need to moderate the salt in the other components of your meal when you include feta.

Zany Zeus is excellent - the best NZ made feta I have eaten. The Australian Lemnosbrand is good too, but not as creamy.

having a blond moment now but I roast pumpkin(chopped) garlic whole fry bacon add feta strain as much water off cooked spinach and mix all together with pine nuts and place on that really thin pastry that you need at least 4 slices of and butter in between(sorry it has completely flown away) then wrap and use egg wash and put sesame seeds on top
cook till pastry is cooked YUMMY

filo pastry is the one sorry
