One of the joys of home cheese making is being able to add your own flavours to suit your tastes. Fetta is a simple cheese to make and is very versatile. We have a saying here at our cheesemaking workshops, “A little bit of Fetta makes life better!”. Our fetta is made using cow’s milk.
Fetta is a brined cheese and is ready to eat four to five days after making. This is one of the easiest cheeses to make. The beauty is you can add your own herbs and salt according to your taste.
Haloumi originated in Cyprus and is very quick to make. You can eat it on the same day as you made it, or you can store it in a brine solution for several weeks. It’s sometimes called “squeaky cheese” due to its feel and texture when eating. Halloumi is a popular cheese cooked on a grill or BBQ. It goes well with Mediterranean flavours and is also a hit at breakfast with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.
Paneer is a high-protein cheese and is used in traditional Indian cuisine. It is a fresh, firm cheese with a mild, milky flavour that goes deliciously well in curries. Just chop it into cubes and add to your favourite curry recipe.
