EZRA’S Family has been producing Feta cheese in the Mediterranean region for more than 100 years. The recipes have been passed from generation to generation. This is the first time we introduce an authentic Mediterranean Feta cheese produced in the USA to the US consumers. Ezra’s Feta is creamy and smooth with a very authentic flavor. Unlike the traditional style feta which is very crumbly and in many cases sold as crumbled Feta, EZRA’S Feta is sold as chunks, sliced cubes that can be used in salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, baking, cooking and many other options. EZRA’S Feta is also available as a lite Feta with only 1.5g of fat per oz, but with all of the flavors and creaminess like the original. EZRA’S Feta is sold in a “Stay Fresh Cup” with brine to maintain freshness and flavors. The cheese is kept in a small basket in the brine that can be lifted and hung on top of the cup, out of the brine for convenient use. When finished enjoying the Feta you can lower it back into the brine to maintain freshness at all times.
