Actually, I am not even sure if feta comes from cows. I seem to get along with goat's milk, etc.



I think it's made with goat or sheep milk. So, you may be ok :)

It's goat milk and Greek.

Feta cheese lasts a long time in the fridge. !

I remember eating feta in Lasagna before (years ago) but it will be kind of new to me. I'll check it out if it isn't from cows.

My usual salad could use more flavours!

I had a roasted chicken sandwich on a multigrain bun with lettuce, green olives, and tomatoes, and a bowl of Beef Barley soup on the side. Oh, and a cup of coffee afterwards. :)

Mari you are right either goat or sheep milk.

Feta (Greek φέτα, female) is a classic curd cheese in brine whose tradition dates back to Greece thousands of years ago. It is made exclusively from goat's and sheep's milk.

It is salted and cured in a brine solution (which can be either water or whey) for 3 to several months. Feta dries out rapidly when removed from the brine. Feta cheese is white, usually formed into square cakes, and can range from soft to semi-hard, with a tangy, salty flavor that can range from mild to sharp. Its fat content can range from 30 to 60 percent; most is around 45 percent milk fat.

Feta cheese is covered by a protected designation of origin.

History

What we nowadays call feta cheese was known to ancient Greeks, at least since Homer's era, as there were several references to it in the Odyssey. The myth has it that the Cyclops Polyphemus was the first cheese manufacturer. Carrying the milk that he collected from his sheep in animal-skin bags, he realised, to his great surprise, that days later the milk had become a solid, savory and preservable mass.

The name Feta (slice) dates back to the 17th century, and it likely refers to the method of cutting the cheese in slices to put it in barrels.

BWII, adding fruit to a green salad is really good too whether it be orange, grapefruit, mango, etc. Oh, and also starfruit when it is in season.

My father has similar complaints. I also don't like milk, but I'm not allergic.

Most mammals will die if they drink their mother's milk after the weening period.

Maybe somehow it is possible that the milk produced is genetically connected to the litter/children and not meant for competators?

FONTINA CHEESE

Fontina cheese ('Fontina Val d'Aosta'), one of Italy's great cheeses, has been made in the Aosta Valley in the Alps since the 12th century. Young Fontina is used in as a table cheese, and in cooking (especially fonduta). Mature Fontina is a hard grating cheese.

Fontina is an Italian cow's milk cheese, about 45% milkfat.

We need milk products because we don't eat right. We used to eat a different diet (lot's of fruits vegetables and meat) before the invention of agriculture, when we were still hunters/gatherers. Our bodies are adjusted to that diet. Since the invention of agriculture about 8000 years ago we have switched to a diet containing grains or rice as staple food. But this doesn't contain enough nutrients, so we have to supplement our diet with diary producucts. Otherwise we wouldn't get enough calcium, vitamin D and some other minerals like zink.

You are only speculating as to 8000 years ago. ;) + give us the anthropological link for your facts.

What about 200,000 years ago. ;)
