Many of us are familiar with feta as the white, slightly salty cheese that is crumbled into Greek salads in 24-hour diners across America. Feta is truly a great cheese for salads, but it is also a delicious table cheese that should not be overlooked. Feta is Greek for “slice” because feta is made in very large blocks, then sliced. A saltwater brine is then poured over the pieces to arrest the ripening process. Feta is sold in jars, tins or tubs, submersed in its brine in order to keep it young and fresh. Tangra Bulgarian Feta, also known as Brindza, is made from pure sheep’s milk from free-grazing ewes in the Rhodope Mountains. The name Tangra comes from ancient Bulgarian mythology, in which a deity named Tangra protected animals and promoted agriculture. Both creamy and crumbly, and not too salty, we are sure you will find it to be one of the best fetas you have ever eaten. Made from pasteurized sheep’s milk.

My wife and I are thorough “feta foodies”. We’ve tried just about every feta available to US consumers and this is the absolute best we have found so far — smoother, creamier, and seasoned the best. Far better than Bristol Farms, Trader Joe’s, or any other grocery store selection. This is the stuff whether you use it on salads, in scrambled eggs, or just as a table cheese. I think the difference may be that this feta doesn’t seem to be brined which can oddly dry out, mush up, and give the cheese a completely different texture than this brand. Highly recommended!
