Home Dairy Cheese Kourouniotis Barrel-Aged Feta PDO

Kourouniotis Barrel-Aged Feta PDO

This sheep and goat’s milk feta is produced daily by hand and then aged in beech barrels for at least 3 months, producing a distinctive rich, salty and crumbly feta. Proud dairy farmer Vasilis Kourouniotis lives and breathes cheese on his farm in the mountainous village of Elliniko in the centre of the Peloponnese. Sloping into the river Lousios, his traditional, small-scale dairy is powered by the incredible fresh and fragrant sheep’s and goat's milk who feast on the abundant surrounding hills of Arcadia.

This is a version of the dish we've been serving ever since opening and exactly how my mom still cooks it in Istanbul.

Unlike the common mücver this one has lots of fresh garlic for a more pungent flavour and therefore shares similarities with öcce fritters of Antep (a province in Southeastern Turkey).
