Cheese of the Week - Kefalograviera

Combine with tomatoes, olives and capers in a salad, or fry it up to make Saganaki.

Cheese of the Week - Tnuva Feta

In honor of Passover, the cheese of this week is Tnuva's Feta-Style Sheep’s Cheese, made in Israel from cow's or sheep's milk. This briny cheese is kosher for Passover (as are most kosher cheeses) and crumbles nicely for salads.
