Beetroot stuffed with feta

Mediterranean Delicacies was the first factory shop I visited when we moved to Cape Town way back when. This factory shop/ home industry no longer operates as a little shop, because it had to make way for a much bigger operation. A huge business supplying both the Northern and Southern parts of South Africa with an ever-expanding range of Mediterranean products.
I use to buy salads, dolmades, feta and roll mops in buckets full when I still catered for huge functions. Their products are always fresh and superior in quality. I was so excited to start work for them and when the products finally arrived yesterday, My head literally spun with ideas. Hope you like my ideas.


Mediterranean Delicacies products are so fantastic that you actually have to do very to it to make it taste better so I wanted to make something really special with the Danish Style feta, but retain that lovely creamy texture. I am not sure why I took this product from the box first, maybe because I once started a whole feta debate on my blog and never even knew that the name feta is as sacred as champagne. My family prefers this Danish Style feta because of its creamy texture – hot or cold, it is a winner.
