Australian Feta, made with cow's milk is a semi-soft, white cheese with a unique texture and flavour due to its manufacturing process. Initially a fresh cheese, Feta is sometimes described as a 'pickled' cheese because once it has been made, it is stored in a brine bath for a maturing period of at least 8 weeks. The brine salts the cheese and keeps it moist. When mature, Feta has a white, moist body and can be soft, firm or even ‘crumbly’ in texture. Australian Feta is a milder and creamier cheese than imported varieties and tends to slice easier and is less crumbly.
