Feta

I have some really good feta the other day. It was creamy and smooth. I've never been a fan as I find I don't like the crumbly texture but this one was different. Does anyone have a good recommendation where I can get some?

Thanks!

    My fave is Dodonis Feta which you can get at Parthenon in Kits.

      Dodonis is supposed to be the gold standard for feta. I find it dry though. Had a bit of a feta tasting at Parthenon and found a creamy one. Can't remember the name though.

      I like "Macedonian" feta packed in un-branded tubs which we buy once in a while. I don't remember where, though. I'll have a look around and report back.

          I'm surprised that repartee had dry Dodonis at Parthenon. Dodonis is the creamiest feta I have yet found, maybe because it is sheep's milk (?). They also have a nice bulk Macedonian which is worth trying (not in tubs). And they're very generous with "tastes" as well.

        Thanks everyone. I'll definitely give Dodonis a try. Does anyone know if you can purchase it closer to the east side?

            This might not be super helpful to you, but Persian and Middle Eastern markets usually carry several styles of feta. I love Bulgarian-style personally, though the Scandivian fetas tend to be more smooth - maybe that's what you had?
