For millennia, there has been a respected cheesemaking tradition in Turkey that is passed down from generation to generation. Beyaz Peynir, which literally translates to “white cheese”, is the Turkish version of Feta. Among the most popular cheeses in the region, Beyaz Peynir comes in many variations, using cow’s milk, sheep’s milk or goat’s milk. Tahsildaroglu Traditional Feta Cheese is made exclusively from the milk of naturally fed cows in the Ezine region of the Taz Mountains. Made similarly to Greek Feta, Tahsildaroglu Traditional Feta Cheese is a white brined and aged crumbly cheese, with a tangy and slightly salty flavor. Enjoy our Feta in a classic Turkish breakfast or as an appetizer with tomato, cucumbers, olives and a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Artichoke bottoms Turkish-style is a spectacular dish eaten alone, as an alternative to salad, or the traditional Turkish way as a part of a larger line-up of meze, or starters served before the main meal. The light flavors and seasoning with fresh dill weed accent rather than overpower the delicate flavor of the artichoke.
