This is Ina Garten's secret for convincing your guests that you're a natural-born cook! I recommend Greek or French feta if you can find it. Usually Ina prefers feta cubed rather than crumbled, but here she crumbles it in large pieces. Pernod is one of her secret ingredients. "Whenever I cook with fennel, Pernod gives the dish just the right licorice jolt that I love. You don't know the Pernod is there, you just know that the fennel tastes wonderful."
