Greek cuisine is founded on the triad of wheat, olive oil, and wine. Other important ingredients include pasta, cheeses, lemon juice, herbs, olives, and yoghurt.
Greek cuisine is the cuisine of Greece and the Greek diaspora. In common with many other cuisines of the Mediterranean, it is founded on the triad of wheat, olive oil, and wine. It uses vegetables, olive oil, grains, fish, and meat, including pork, poultry, veal and beef, lamb, rabbit, and goat. Other important ingredients include pasta (for example hilopites), cheeses, lemon juice, herbs, olives, and yoghurt. Bread made of wheat is ubiquitous; other grains, notably barley, are also used, especially for paximathia. Common dessert ingredients include nuts, honey, fruits, and filo pastries. It continues traditions from Ancient Greek and Byzantine cuisine, while incorporating Middle Eastern, Balkan and Italian influences.
This is a vegan tomato-based stew, caper yiachni is made with stewed with garlic, onions, tomatoes and caper leaves. I started with the recipe from www.thepeppercook.com/2017/12/02/inspired-by-greece/ and modified it to our tastes (mostly by doubling the herbs and spices). Plus because I...
I used these as part of a Greek mezze meal.
1 pound baking potato, baked, peeled and riced
1 egg yolk
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley or cilantro or oregano or a mixture, even throw in a little dill
1/2 cup finely grated kefalotiri or...
This makes rather a large amount (I made it for a lunch) so you may want to divide the quantities in half.
6 medium aubergines/eggplants, sliced into rounds
750 gms minced beef (minced lamb would also work)
2 medium onions, diced
400 gms tomatoes (large tin)
2 tbsps tomato puree
Delicate dill adds a delicious flavour to the lamb in these cabbage rolls and the sharpness of the creamy lemon sauce is perfect with lamb. This recipe is quite easy to make as there is no chopping required. Most versions of this Greek inspired dish use a mix of meat and rice for the stuffing...

You can also use other cuts of skin-on chicken. Or, combine them.

Moussaka is the most popular and probably the most delicious Greek dish! A hearty moussaka consists of deep-fried layers of potato and eggplant, a juicy and flavorful beef mince sauce, and a creamy bechamel. Recreate this legendary Greek dish at your home with this traditional moussaka recipe...
A couple important things – not to overcook the scallops OR to undercook the puff pastry. Striking the balance meant watching the oven often. There was more of a concern making the mini-pie than the mini-muffins – because in the latter case you do want to make sure that the scallops and...
The original recipe came from "My Adventures in BBq'in and Grillin': Rotisserie Grilled Greek Gyros." The web site was gone the last time I looked. I have modified the recipe in spices and technique to fit our tastes.
2 lbs ground lamb or a mix of lamb and ground beef (which is what we did...

It really tastes a LOT better than the ingredients sound, because this all plays well together. (I mean, it "seems" bland, but really is not.)
I made mild adaptations to the following recipe (namely, the addition of celery, and the halving of the recipe. I also omitted the bay...
The Greek name for this salad is: Kardia Arniou Stin Schara Kai Marathosalata. A little too long to put in the title.

Hi all, this is my first post so apologies if I'm doing any Cooking Bites faux pas!
Last weekend we hosted a dinner party and my wife asked me to bake something. She sent me a video of a Greek style pull apart beer bread with Feta so I tried my hand at it without the beer.
This bread was easy...

A dear friend of many years who is an Extra Virgini Olive Oil producer of the gold award winning Bio Organic Evoo in Peloponnese, Evdominda, had given me this recipe a few years ago, and I have been re-organising my cookbooks via country and / or province / región to make my culinary projects...
