  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/390F.
  2. Place the feta in the centre of a piece of baking paper or foil in a baking dish, making sure there is plenty of spare paper or foil around the cheese.
  3. Pile the tomato, pepper, olives and capers on top. Then sprinkle with the paprika, oregano and black pepper. Finally, drizzle over the olive oil.
  4. Gather up the sides of the paper or foil and scrunch it up roughly into the middle to make a parcel.
  5. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the feta is soft. Squeeze a little lemon over if you like and eat immediately with fresh bread.
