Cheesecake is a favorite sweet in many parts of the world. But its history goes back a long way and reaches ancient Greece, having a rich history! The first cheesecake to be discovered was on the island of Samos. Researchers believe its date is estimated at 2000 BC.
Besides, the existence of dairy products is calculated in prehistoric times. In ancient Greece, this dish was considered a source of energy, while historical evidence seems to tell us that this sweet was offered to athletes during the first Olympic Games in 776 BC.
Also interesting is the fact that cheesecake in ancient Greece was also used as a wedding cake, but with simple ingredients such as flour, wheat, honey and cooked cheese, which differ greatly from the complex recipes available today.
