“Posted in honor of Ev's visit to Crete. From Mrs. Kristalia Psoma of the Exantas restaurant in Crete. I had no mizithra so crumbled 1/2 pound of sheep feta and cut up well-aged queso into cubes. The cheeses went into the food processor and after they were ground well, I added just enough heavy cream to bind them together. It worked great, not only as a binder but added the richness of the cream and moderated the "bite" of the cheese. Don't use the mainland, northern Greek version of mizithra. It's too dry, low in fats, and will not blend into the dish.”
