Greek food guide

Food is an integral part of Greek culture. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. It’s not just a means to survival for us, it is a sacred part of the day where nutrition meets tastiness. We take our munchies seriously. We may have talked about the Sunday dinner tradition in Greece, but what about the homemade dishes that make up the Sunday dinner? Find below the most popular Greek homey recipes that no self-respecting Greek home omits from its weekly diet plan.

Greece has been blessed with a geographical position that offers a mild climate and fertile land. The combination of the two is responsible for the variety of products that have made Greece famous across the world.

The luscious Cretan cuisine has been associated with health since the early 60s, due to the Seven Countries Study, a study that showed Cretans having the best health conditions and the lower rates of coronary heart disease and cancer mortality than all other populations studied.

Although rich in flavor, the Cretan cuisine is rather sparing regarding its variety of ingredients. The traditional dishes of Crete can be cooked with just a handful of products, with the flavorsome result being achieved through the art of processing simple materials, rather than through the concoction of intricate food combinations.

Now that we’ve waxed lyrical about the unmatched value of it, it’s time for you to get practical insight into the piquant Cretan cuisine. Here, we have gathered our favorite Cretan recipes that you absolutely, positively, urgently need to try.
