I may never eat feta again

As regular readers will know, one of our favorite things about being in an international community is the different foods you can get. Today Sarah and I found another: manouri. It's a Greek cheese, packaged in a block like feta. Like feta, it's a sheep's milk cheese; and like feta, it's crumbly (at least I guess that's the way your supposed to eat it). It's also got its own protected appellation like feta…and champagne. The taste, though, is subtly but distinctly different. Think of sweet, less salty feta and you're about there.

We also found a frying cheese, like that stuff that's all the rage in certain NPR-listening circles in the US.
