Cheese, dairy and eggs

Greek soft cheese made by different producers

Τυριά, γαλακτοκομικά και αυγά (Tyria, galatokomika kai avga) means cheese, dairy and eggs in Greek, and it isn't all feta. After France and Italy, Greece produces the most PDO (or ΠΟΠ, POP) cheeses anywhere, nearly always from the milk of animals grazed on the country's wild herbs, and often prepared according to methods that go back to Homer's day.
