When actor/comedian Andy Milonakis hits the homeland, his Instagram blows up with really good food photos (see: that time he took over our Instagram). In the latest installment of YouTube series Andy’s Hungry Voyage, he’s got his eyes on the prize: Crete’s famed cheese, especially the cheese from award-winning Balantinos Cretan Dairy. There, he mostly watches as this salty, flavorful Graviera cheese is crafted start to finish.

Take our update on Megan Draper’s coq au vin, for example, or a fondue version of Pete’s pastrami Reuben. Or the best tuna noodle casserole you’ve ever eaten, hands down. We’ve even got a handful of recipes from the actual (yet unofficial) Mad Men Cookbook. Yes, today is a great day and age to eat like it’s 1969.

This, the land of ACNE and Uniforms For The Dedicated, is now selling long underwear emblazoned with Ray Kroc’s two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun creation.
