Marinated Feta Cheese

This marinated feta cheese is a great way to add flavour to your feta.

There was a debate a while ago between journalists and food bloggers as to whom deserves the ‘airspace’ more! Personally, I find it childish and pathetic and wonder why there cannot be space for all of us in the world. In fact, I know some journalists who blog, and some bloggers who contribute to magazines. Then, the next point is made by a food blogger who thinks there is no space for those of us that blog for the love of blogging. She thinks there is some ulterior motivation for people who blog. Frankly my dear, I don’t give a crumb (with thanks to Gone with the Wind). I blog because I love to share my recipes with anyone who wants to read them. I type a story at the start, because I like to share my feelings and thoughts and observations. This is my space to say what I want to about everything and anything. I want to be able to eat at a restaurant and say honestly what I liked and disliked about the place and the food and the service. I want to offer an opinion about a product without someone accusing me of being paid to say the words. I will tell you when I get a freebie, and know this, I have turned down a few offers! I feel that if you blog with honesty and integrity the world is your oyster and I hope that each one of us finds a string of pearls. For the rest of you, who think you are above us because you are famous, or published (oh, I forgot, so am I) or have done some amazing things in the food world, please go and marinade in your own juices!

  1. APPLAUSE!!!!!! Well said, Tandy, and I’m glad you got that off your chest. I still get cross when I think of the sheer nastiness of that little episode – I won’t even read her posts anymore, and removed her from my blog-roll.

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe – I doubled up on feta by accident last week, and this will be an excellent way to use it. Hugs!

  2. Oooh, I was totally unaware of this debate over airspace! I’m just a blogger sharing our family recipes for my daughter and family. As for your feta, I too marinate feta as well as mozzarella. Keeping it on hand to use in appetizers or extra flavoring in dishes.

  3. HA! You tell ’em Tandy. I completely agree. What’s wrong with just blogging because you simply enjoy it? Eesh. Anyways, the marinated feta sounds absolutely awesome. 🙂

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
