Welcome readers, we will share the writing of food recipes, and this can be directly practiced in your own home
for a good meal, I understand the food culture upon which Greece is
built. The essence of Greek food culture is that the food is secondary
to the atmosphere, conversation, and friendships developed while sharing
a meal. Sharing and eating out are treasured traditions.
basic ingredients of Greek food are few, and basic at that: olive oil,
yoghurt, honey, cheese, fruits and vegetables, lamb and fish. However
the manner is which they are prepared is what gives Greek food it’s
variety and character.
Unique to Greece and it’s culture of
sharing food is the delight of being invited into the kitchen of your
host (or restaurant) to view the offerings and make a selection.
Greek diet also happens to one of the healthiest in the world, so I
believe there’s a lot we could learn. Let’s try a traditional Greek
recipe today and continue our adventures in global food culture. We’re
going to make a Moussaka, which is a creamy baked dish. I’ve also
included a recipe for Tzatziki, which is a traditional yoghurt dip, good
for a started or side dish. You may also wish to serve the main dish
with a salad.
