Foods of Greece

By

Whether it’s a simple dish of grilled vegetables or a highly complex and delicate pastry dish, Greek cuisine is as colorful and diverse as the legendary history of Greece itself. Simple Greek fare of rural villages and farms has merged with complex flavors and ingredients of the big cities to make up the wonderful variety of Greek food available today. Greece is becoming just as famous for its diversity of cuisine as it is for its historically fascinating past. Although there are hundreds of indigenous ingredients to Greece, ingredients alone do not make up Greek food. Traditional preparation, fresh ingredients and flavors and Greek ingenuity are all required to make a truly Greek dish worthy of recognition.
