The Greeks will tell you that only Greek-made feta cheese should be called feta. But Bulgarians make and eat feta cheese too. They call this "white cheese" sirene
. Bulgarian feta, made from sheeps' or goats' milk, is eaten all over Bulgaria in traditional Bulgarian dishes, like the shopska salata
, consisting of sirene, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and cucumbers.
This Bulgarian feta cheese is displayed on a plate of Bulgarian pottery.
