Feta is a regular at the table over summer and we try to introduce all of you to new eats whenever you are in store. Feta is such a staple in New Zealander’s diets that we are lucky enough to have some very fine producers to celebrate.
Zany Zeus is one of our favourites. Based in Wellington and inspired by the way his Cypriot mother Lefki made halloumi cheese, Michael Matsis decided to research the art of cheese making. With a Food Technologist degree under his belt and years of perfecting the art of cheese-making, including installing a VAT machine outside his sister Meropi’s Wellington house, Michael’s dream became a reality in 2000 when he started up his first business Zany Zeus with his sister by his side. Halloumi came first but feta soon followed and we know some of you cant get enough of it! Traditionally textured –Michael’s feta has a firmness that makes it easy to cut but also has a beautiful full milk flavour. We know a lot of feta’s out there are simply all about a creamy mouth feel – Zany Zeus feta is also about taste.
Perfect for an easy watermelon and feta salad!
