Biggest cheese in the world!

Zoniana, a small town in Crete, has claimed a place in the Guinness World Records. Whoever was in Zoniana on the 31st of July had the opportunity to taste the biggest cheese in the world, the traditional kefalotiri. It is an initiative taken by the municipality celebrating the 4th Shepherd and Cheese Festival, organised by the local cultural association. 

In order to make this large cheese they Cretans used about eight tonnes of milk, having a diameter of two meters and weighing over a tonne.
