Kostarelos Soft Barrel-aged Feta Catering Pack

Kostarelos family feta is entirely handmade from beginning to end in the most traditional way possible. Cheesemakers cut the curd, place it in moulds, rotate it in beech barrels, then inspect and painstakingly care for each feta block as it ages. Soft feta is much harder to produce and little known outside of Greece. It is milder, creamier and much softer in texture than the usual, hard, crumbly feta but absolutely delicious and worth seeking out.

Kostarelos, Markopoulo, Attica

The Kostarelos family started making cheese with milk from their own farms in 1937 to serve to guests at their tavern in Markopoulo. By the 1960s production had expanded, and they opened more dairy facilities, creating an integrated, structured production process, while still preserving their traditions. Three generations later, the Kostarelos family continue to collect milk from selected small farms and make cheese, yoghurt, rice puddings and other dairy products. Respect and dedication to tradition, along with the family's know-how in sourcing milk exclusively from small Greek farms, are the secrets to their success and the quality of their products. Their barrel-aged feta is considered one of the very best and few forget the experience of first trying their traditionally strained Greek yoghurt.
