"Grotesque and political"
Posted by Gordon Smith

That was Hans Bender of the Danish Dairy Board after the European Court of Justice upheld the name "feta" as a protected designation of origin for Greece. Bender wonders, "What will be next? Will the Italians demand that pizza become a protected product that no one can make?" (W$J)

So what will happen? Non-Greek producers of feta will continue to produce the cheese, but they will use other names. What would you call your feta if you couldn't call it "feta"?
