There is a notion that in Greece there is one cheese that rules them all. One cheese that is on every single dish, and that’s feta.
Every person associates Greek cheese as being feta, and while there are many other cheeses Greek’s eat, feta has risen to the top, especially in touristy areas.
I personally feel the rise of feta in Greece has some part to do with the influx of tourists each summer that ask for it and want to have it because it’s the “Greek cheese.”

Cretan DacosOne of the authentic cultural elements of a region is gastronomy. The distinctiveness of the “kitchen taste” (gustation) is many times associated with the quality characteristics of its society, while “revealing” information concerning its cultural and economical history.
At the same time, gustation seems to be a way of communicating. A way for someone to “talk” to the heart of someone else.
Greek gastronomy has recorded a history of around 4,000 years, with especial characteristics based on pure and unique quality goods produced on Greek land. In fact, it was Archestratos who wrote the first cookbook in history (330 B.C.).
In Greek nutritional tradition the gustative result blends harmonically with the high nutritional value. Dozens of scientific studies have shown the positive effect of a balanced Greek diet on a person’s health, beauty and longevity. In addition, the nutritional culture of the Greeks has traditionally added an extraverted social dimension to the table, combining gustative satisfaction with recreation and communication, and thus maintaining even today some overtones from ancient feasts.
