From the Preface
White brined cheeses are the main varieties of cheese consumed in the Middle East and along the shores of the Mediterranean, and yet the literature describing the manufacture and/or properties of the major types is extremely sparse. The aim of this book is to provide a detailed guide to the cheeses in this category, and to review the available information relating to their production, their maturation and their distribution to the consumer. In most cases, the cheese are still produced on a small scale, and only one variety, Feta, has achieved real popularity outside its land of origin. One of the reasons for this single success is the degree of mechanization that can now be employed in the manufacture of Feta, including the latest technological developments such as ultra-filtration.
