Enhance the humble block of crumbly feta into a luxurious, creamy spread with a touch of honey and a burst of heat. Pair this delightful spread with warm pita and fresh vegetables for a refreshing summer supper. Complete the experience with a chunk of crusty bread and a glass of chilled white wine, creating the ideal warm-weather meal. If thyme honey is unavailable, regular honey serves as a suitable alternative for this delectable dish.

 8 oz Block of Feta, preferably Greek, blotted dry
 1 stick Sprig of fresh thyme, optional
 2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
 1 tbsp Local Raw Honey
 1 pinch Black pepper
 4 Pita bread, toasted and cut into wedges
 Heirloom tomatoes, walnuts nuts (Optional)
1

1 Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Select a small oven-to-table earthenware dish or a small ovenproof sauté pan. Place the feta in the dish, top with thyme, if using, and cover with the olive oil. Bake until the cheese is soft and springy to the touch but not melted, about 8 minutes.

2 Heat the broiler. Heat the honey in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water until it is fluid enough to be spread with a pastry brush, then paint the surface of the feta with it. Broil until the top of the cheese browns and just starts to bubble. Season to taste with black pepper. Serve immediately with pita wedges and, if desired, sliced heirloom tomatoes, roasted beets, nuts or pickled vegetables.
