One of my favorite things about greek cuisine is the abundance of feta. Here in the US, we sometimes sprinkle small portions of feta cheese to add a kick of fresh, cheesy goodness. In Greece, they don't sprinkle. They don't even crumble. They cut a block of feta and serve it to you on a place with some vegetables (see middle photo above).
My favorite greek food to make at home is Spanakopita. The fresh, crisp phylo dough softly covering a beautiful, blended mixture of feta cheese, fresh parsley, lemon juice and other fresh herbs and spices is so tasty. The perfect appetizer.
