We have been collaborating with Arla on several projects, but this is probably the one we are most excited about. Just concerning søl, the good people people there have done several cheeses, all quite good, but none with that “wow, that’s….amazing” quality we were all hoping for. Until this feta here. We agreed it was important to have an extremely good quality product to launch for the consumers, and this cheese is at this level. The feta style really suits the søl, the slight saltiness emphasizing the best parts of the flavor profile. The hard working lads at Arla found the søl worked best when incorporated into a very high fat content, and then through a rather clever process is returned to a milk proper for feta production. We just finished a final taste tweak and are both excited to have a product that will be available to consumers.
