Wahaca's Soft Baked Feta

If this baby comes out looking like hunk of emmental, a slice of applewood cheddar or a crumble of feta I would not be at all suprised. Cheese. I cannot get enough of it. On crackers, with apple slices, melted on toast.... yes please.... this is my latest fancy. It is taken from Wahaca Mexican Food at Home. If you have not been to Wahaca in London yet - do - it is lovely and fairly easy on the bank balance - lots of spice, tang and salsa and a favourite to meet my girlfriends in as it's platter sharing which I love. In the meantime try this at home - spicey, salty and zesty - just scoop it up with a crusty loaf.....
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.

Drain and slice the feta and lay it out in an earthenware bowl wide enough to hold the 
slices in a single layer.

Finely chop the garlic and the herbs, and roughly chop the chillies. Sprinkle them over the 
feta with the lime juice and zest. Finally, pour over the extra virgin olive oil.

Bake for 10–15 minutes, until the cheese is soft and squidgy and smelling irresistible.
