What should you taste when visiting Greece? Greek flavour No 2: Cheese

Cheese: Greece used to be a predominantly live stocking country. This may be the reason that almost every district around the country –even the islands- produces a special type of cheese. Due to the uniqueness of the local production, twenty-one of them have certified as “protected designation of origin” (PDO =protected designation of origin). Visitors are mostly familiar with Feta cheece, graviera from Crete or Naxos and Katiki Domokou. If you have ever tasted them, this taste will follow you forever!

  1. Oh yeah, love me some FETA! And kasseri, kefalotyri, graviera....

  2. They are all great cheeses. Make no mistake, the original FETA is only the Greek one.
