A little bit creamy with signature notes of salt and tang, there are few foods more revered in Greek culture than Feta. For this Feta Cheesecake, the bright, bold flavors of Feta PDO create a slightly tangier twist on the classic. Made with sheep’s milk or a mixture of sheep’s and up to 30% goat’s milk, the uniquely rich and buttery quality of each milk used in Feta PDO makes for a truly spectacular-tasting cheesecake. A cinnamon-scented graham cracker crumb crust surrounds the rich, custardy filling made with a touch of lemon for a zesty boost. Topped with fresh berries for a sweet, summery look, this cheesecake is a taste of the Mediterranean in a familiar favorite.
When shopping for Feta, be sure to look for the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) symbol, which ensures the quality, uniqueness, and authenticity of the Feta you buy. “Designation of Origin” identifies products that originate from a certain region, area, or country. Feta PDO, a flagship product of mainland Greece and Lesvos, achieves its unmatched quality thanks to its specific surrounding geographical environment, accompanied by traditions and cultural practices that have been in place for centuries. Feta with PDO certification also promises that no powdered milk, colorants, or preservatives were used in its production and accounts for a regulated production and maturation process that yields Feta with fuller flavor, richer aromas, brighter white coloring, and consistent but delightfully soft structure. Whether used in sweet or savory applications, Feta will add a tasty bite to all your bakes!
