Greek cuisine is known for being healthy. This is because so many dishes are made up of natural foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, wild herbs and legumes. Although there are heartier dishes like moussaka (and cheese is a favored addition to many meals), Greek foods tend to be simple, colorful and nutritious. Their cuisine is also characterized by the flavor of lamb in many dishes and widely used olive oil, along with oregano, dill, parsley, pepper, basil, mint and arugula. Our recipes include the traditional foods like dolmades, spanakopita and lamb gyros. We also share with you step by step directions for making your own homemade phyllo dough and tzatziki sauce.
