Feta cheese is a trademark of Greek cuisine around the world. Besides the Greek salad, it is found in many Greek dishes and pies, as in cheese pie and spinach pie. It is rich in protein, calcium and vitamins and has a high nutritional value.
Feta cheese was produced in Greece since the days of Homer. It is believed that it comes from the white, soft cheese made in the cave of the Cyclops Polyphemus, in the 8th BC century, as described by Homer in the Odyssey. Today it is a product with protected designation of origin and made exclusively from goat’s milk.
