Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Mt. Vikos Feta is a traditionally made Greek sheep’s milk cheese. The milk is gathered from sheep and goats during the months when the pastures give the greenest and sweetest grass. The animals are not given any antibiotics and the cheese is never treated with any preservatives or artificial additives. After the milk is collected and the cheese is made, it is placed into barrels to age for four months. During this time, the Feta develops a thick and rich texture and a complex flavor profile.

Feta cheese is a Mediterranean classic and has an easily recognizable salty and earthly flavor. Its dry texture is easily crumbled and works well in salads, especially if the salad contains other Mediterranean ingredients. Feta isn’t thought of as one of the best melting cheeses, but it will soften a great deal and become almost runny when cooked into an omelet or incorporated into a hot pasta dish.

If you’re looking for a wine pairing, try a Pinot Blanc.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
