Greek Mountain Cheeses

Grass-fed takes on a whole other dimension here in Epirus, Greece's untrammeled northwestern mainland, where sheep and goats graze in the lush green mountains. Here, Diane follows the country's best-known cheese, feta, from its artisanal roots to modern state-of-the-art production. She explores a range of other sheep and goat milk cheeses that are new to most Americans. Diane visits a shepherd in the villages called Zagorohoria and makes farmhouse cheeses with a local friend Vassilis Paparounas. Back in the kitchen, Diane whips up a fiery feta and hot pepper spread, bakes pork with vegetables and cheese in paper, and grills an easy cheese dessert paired with Greek figs. Experience the wonderful world of Greek cheeses and learn how to use them to create an irresistibly cheesy menu. Ktipiti, feta fire dip; Pork exohico with kefalotyri cubes; Grilled manouri cheese with figs.
