    This makes a wonderful hostess gift, especially for those who might otherwise not be familiar with feta or Greek cooking. A good start for developing those pungent taste buds! I think I would include a recipe using feta cheese with this gift, such as spanakopita triangles!  -  04 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Get ready to pucker because this is pungent! Great topper for a big old Greek salad.  -  31 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
