One may not immediately think of feta when listing their favourite cheeses, but we think that it’s because feta is an underrated cheese. It’s time to give feta the flowers it deserves by making it the main attraction. These two recipes can be served at various occasions from braais and picnics to laidback dinner parties and New Year’s Eve celebrations. They may not require ingredients that break the bank but they sure do make an impact on any menu.

1. Fried sundried tomato feta mezze platter

Salty sun-dried tomato and basil feta cheese is coated in panko breadcrumbs and pan-fried to golden perfection. The crispy fried layer enveloping the feta that has melted slightly from being in heat is unbeatable. This is a great quick-and-easy appetiser for any occasion – it’ll be gone within minutes.
