Telemes is a type of soft white cheese that resembles Feta. It is made from sheep, goat or cow’s milk in areas where there is abundant cattle farming, such as Thrace. Telemes is known for its peppery and refreshing taste. It is often grated for use in pita pies adding a stronger taste or as a table cheese. It is cut in large pieces and preserved exclusively in tin containers with brine. The difference between the cheese and Feta is in production method and salting. The cheese is perhaps more compact and acidic. Fat content depends on the milk and production method.
