Sometime I make far more than enough so there’s plenty left for the next day’s work lunch or dinner.
I’m sure the nutritional value is shot by then and, of course, it’s not fresh.
But you know what?
Often it tastes better.
Same scenario works with a mixed Italian salad.
I’ve been told that white cheeses – feta, mozzarella, ricotta and so on – are less fatty than the yellow ones.
Nevertheless, I usually order low-fat feta.
Sourced usually from Sims or our local IGA, I notice no decrease in flavour.
Sad to say, this one – from Coles in Williamstown – was flavourless.
