A form of cheesecake was very popular in Ancient Greece.[citation needed] The secret of its manufacture was passed during the Roman invasions.[original research?] At that time, the Latin name used for this type of cake was placenta that was transmitted in Romanian culture.[original research?]

For Saint Peter, the Moldovan prepare alivenci.[2]
