Summary
The ancient Greeks regarded cheese as the food of the gods, so it's little wonder that Greece has the world's highest per capita rate of cheese consumption. Host Will Studd travels to the rugged coast of Northern Greece to learn how wooden barrels play an essential role in maturing traditional Feta and how Manouri, an ancient whey cheese, is made. Then it's time for some hand-rolled filo pastry and homemade pita pies, followed by a trip to the largest Greek isle to sample some local cheese delicacies.
