Made on Wurundjeri country, Yarra Valley, Victoria, this fresh cows milk cheese has been marinated in olive oil, garlic and dried chilli.
Yarra Valley Dairy Firey is a soft creamy fresh cows milk cheese that is marinated in olive oil, garlic and dried chilli giving it a savoury warm finish. A similar cheese to the famous Persian Fetta, Firey is delicious in salads, roast vegetables, risottos or simply with fresh bread.
A little history
Yarra Valley Dairy Persian Fetta was the first product in the Australian marinated cheese market. This benchmark cheese was first created in the 1990's with cheese maker Richard Thomas - inspired by the marinated cheeses of the Middle East & Europe, where brine or oil is used to preserve fresh cheese. Firey is an addition to the very successful marinated cheese range.
The dairy uses the freshest cows milk provided by neighbouring dairy farms and goats milk delivered regularly from the Gippsland region where the natural environment and pastures are more favourable for farming goats.
The majority of the Yarra Valley Dairy cheeses are fresh and soft in characteristic, made in distinctly Italian and French styles, and the range is now growing to include more mature cheeses.
Thanks for the review, Joanne. Marinated cheeses are great to have on hand to spruce up a meal (or eat from the jar with a spoon while no-one's looking.) Yarra Valley Dairy's Persian Fetta is another fabulous kitchen ingredient as well.
