The Greek cheese, a Greek culinary tradition

Greek cheese is a fundamental ingredient of the country's culinary tradition. You can meet it in many different recipes, from meat to fish. Greek cheeses are said to be as many as the islands in Greece.

Among all, surely there is a Greek cheese that is the national symbol and at the same time one of the international references for Greek cuisine: feta cheese. Officially recognized as a PDO cheese in 2002, Greek feta is one of the most used ingredients in traditional Greek cuisine. In the famous Greek salad feta obviously takes on the role of leading actor. However, typical Greek recipes were invented that consider feta as a fundamental ingredient: spanakopita for example, but also the traditional bouyiourdi and many other dishes cooked in the oven.

Even feta cheese and fish recipes find their place inside the Greek Mediterranean diet.

Greek cheese, each island has its own cheese

It is a saying but incredibly resembles reality: each island has its own variety of Greek cheese. And to understand how many varieties of Greek cheese exist, just think that Greece can count on over 3,000 islands.

Greece is a vast territory compared to only 11 million people who live there, and the singular thing is that the number of animals is much higher than that of humans. It is therefore not surprising the incredible production of Greek cheese and dairy products, all of them different from area to area, from island to island.

Naxos, due to its size and variety of the territory, is certainly one of the islands with the largest production of Greek cheeses. But even Crete obviously has an almost infinite variety of Greek cheese.

In the production of Greek cheese the raw material is fundamental, what really differentiates a traditional production linked to the territory. Goat, cow, sheep cheeses ... mixed Greek cheeses.
