Feta Cheese?

Question: My husband and I are arguing about whether or not feta cheese can have cow’s milk in it. Please settle this.

Answer: Both of you are correct. Traditionally there are specific rules that Feta Cheese must have at least 70% sheep’s milk and up to 30% goat’s milk – no cow’s milk. It is a Protected Designation of Origin product from Greece within the European Union. However many countries including Greece now produce a different type of feta using some or even all cow’s milk in making it. Lots of recipes on line for a home-made “modern” feta using cow’s milk. Hope this helps.
