    Default Persian feta?

    Is it safe to eat in pregnancy? It's a little packaged tub of feta marinated in oils and herbs. I thought perhaps it would be okay because it's practically pickled and all sealed up.

    And God I have a serious hankering for it!! Please say its okay!!

    Am pretty sure all cheese in Aus (besides imported roquefort) is pasteurised.

    I didn't think pasteurisation was important when it came to soft cheeses as it's the maturation process after that which can lead to listeria growth.

    I'd love to know also, it's the best! I guess you can always have it in a toasty or on pizza so it's cooked if you are desperate for it. I love it fresh though!

    Yup, I was told any soft cheese is okay if cooked - and cooked properly. Maybe make some bruschetta?

    I've been avoiding uncooked feta but have been having it cooked on pizza or in frittata and things like that

    Hmmm thanks for the replies!

    I really like it fresh on thin water crackers yum yum yum. My mouth is seriously watering thinking about it. I suspect because of the oily marinade it might be okay but I might try to make do with a spanikopita or something. :s I would probably be braver/more reckless if not for the two miscarriages!
