Tirokafteri (Feta cheese spread) (Greek/Macedonian)

Tirokafteri is a typical meze dish / cheese spread in Greece and Macedonia. It's great with warm toasted pita bread or on flat-breads of any kind. Easy to make on the spot or even in advance for a house party. Enjoy :)
Recipe sources: Saveur and Cooking Mediterranean Way.

Last year: Cherry brownie cake.
Two years ago: Obazda and Gouda pumpernickel party rounds.
Three years ago: Turkey steaks in pink champagne sauce.
Four years ago: Spicy shrimp and wild rice soup (Chinese).

Ingredients (for a small bowl):
  • 200 g crumbled feta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small dried chile
  • juice from half a lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • a few kalamata olives 
  • pita bread or pita chips to serve

Puree the feta, olive oil, crumbled chile, lemon juice and pepper in a blender (or use a fork to mash it all up together). Let it rest for at least 15 minutes before serving. 
Decorate with kalamata olives and serve with pita bread or chips.
It's done, dig in! :)
