I really enjoyed listening to your podcast. It sure was a learning experience about Greek cheese. The only one I buy is feta (one of my family's favourites - the other one is 'King' Parmigiano-Reggiano). Your blog has now become my source to learn about Greek cuisine and history.

Great job!

Sue said...

Sam, I would never have thought to use Halloumi cheese on Pizza. I loved your podcast, your so knowledgeable and your historical tidbits on your blog keep me coming back for more.
