How do you take the ‘Butter Board’ to the next level? 

This whipped feta board is different take on the hugely popular ‘Butter Board’ trend featured on Tiktok, by Justine Doiron.  You will love this fun and interesting Greek-inspired appetizer recipe.   For most of these Boards, butter is the star of the show,  but you will find, creamy, lemony feta is a more interesting base than salted or compound butter.  MY BIG FAT GREEK Spreading is healthy, creamy, and delicious.  So addictive  – you will dip and scoop this board clean!

If you’re going for a Greek theme for your night-in, make sure that you supplement this beautiful board with other Greek delicacies. Buying your lamb from Superior Farms and seasoning it with the best Greek herbs and spices is a great way to get started. 

 

 

 

 

What is Feta Cheese?

Feta is a strong brined cured cheese that is tangy, salty and crumbly. Greek Feta cheese is traditionally made from sheep’s and goat’s milk. Feta is one of the oldest and best-known cheeses in the world.  Classified as a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product in the EU and several other countries, cheese sold as feta must adhere to certain requirements, including a minimum 70 per cent sheep’s milk that must come from local breeds of sheep or goats, which have been traditionally raised on local pastures and from designated parts of Greece.  This PDO feta may not contain additives or preservatives. The US had not signed on to the Greek PDO requirements- so Feta can mean many things.  You may want to buy block feta cheese with a stamp or wording to indicate that it is PDO approved, and labelled ‘Greek feta’ rather than feta-style cheese.
