Move over baked brie, you’ve got competition for the hot, gooey, salty appetizer space. Light and fresh, feta cheese is a crumbly and exquisite representation of the Mediterranean. Traditionally made from sheep's cheese, the Greek masterpiece adds a distinctly salty punch wherever its welcomed. Roasted at a high heat, feta softens and caramelizes. Drizzled with a warm Wildflower honey, sprinkled with wild herbs and a dash of hot pepper, this quick and easy appetizer pleases all palates. Serve with a freshly baked loaf of Garlic Focaccia Bread.
