Graviera (Greek: γραβιέρα, pronounced "ghrahv-YAIR-ah") is one of the most popular cheeses in Greece. This wheel-shaped cheese is made from the mixture of cow's, goat's and sheep's milk. Graviera has a sweet and fruity taste. The hard, cooked rind has a crisscross pattern derived from the cloth in which the cheese was drained. There are various types of Graviera, for example Graviera from Crete has a burnt-caramel taste and is made from sheep's milk.
