Indulge with Isabella… Say Cheese!

Hiiiii !It’s me Isabella !!!😁!

And why that CHEESY grin Isabella???

Oh that’s because today’s recipe has in it ….FETA…. 

FETA ?????

‘FETA ‘  kyaa CHEEZ  hai Isabella???

Oh Twinny …Feta is a brined , white ,

curd-like GREEK  Cheese ….curdled from SHEEPS milk!

Most cheese produced around the world is by adding rennet or vinegar to COW’S milk….
Sometimes to GOATS milk ( like in Sudan)

Or to BUFFALO milk  ( as in Egypt).

The Bhutanese and Nepalese use  YAKS milk……..and yes …one can procure cheese even from a  MOOSE !

But the RAREST , MOST EXPENSIVE cheese in the world is from 

SERBIA !

It is from DONKEYS !

It takes 25 litres of milk to produce 1 kg of PULE( donkey cheese)

And One donkey ( Jennie) can produce very little milk!

And donkey milk anyways has very little Casein ….

So less to coagulate!

No wonder it is SO EXPENSIVE …560 dollars per pound!

Very rich in antioxidants and vit c , calcium

Phosphorus ,omega3…..

NOVAk DJOKOVIC bought the worlds entire supply of this cheese!!!   In 2013!!!
