The Greeks LOVE their cheese. Since being here, I’ve had cheese in Tiropita (cheese pie), crumbled on salads, and in Spanikopita (spinach pie), and every bit of each has been delicious. It is so plentiful in the meals here, and even a part of Greek history. Ancient Greeks had a god, Aristaios, dedicated to the craft of making cheese! In order to do my part in this homage to cheese, I decided to put together my own Greek cheese platter. I absolutely love making cheese platters for myself, friends, or for entertaining guests. They are very easy to make and you can’t really mess them up!! Plus, they taste delicious.
