Greek recipes are the foundations of one of the best types of the Mediterranean diet   and have centuries of tradition . They are based on the use of raw materials such as extra virgin olive oil , olives and vegetables , which are widely available in the Greek territory. Meat , especially lamb , and fish are widely used in all traditional Greek recipes .

Greek cuisine consists of recipes closely linked to tradition.

Moussakas is definitely one of the reference recipes of the Greek culinary heritage, a typical dish that represents the fullness of the Greek Mediterranean diet With fresh seasonal vegetables such as aubergines and courgettes , minced meat and gruyere , moussaka is a delicious , energizing and complete meal .

Souvlaki , the excellent Greek "street food", owes its success to the extraordinary simplicity of its preparation and its incomparable taste. A few simple ingredients come together in an excellent Greek dish: pork or chicken and some delicious sauce, the well-known tzatziki , for garnish.

The Greek recipe for tzatziki is completely simple and extremely unique . All you need is creamy Greek yogurt (the whole cup), garlic and cucumber ... and that's it!

Then move on to dishes that are perhaps a little more complicated and therefore tastier, such as the famous papuchsias ( eggplants from Naxos with plenty of meat and cheese) or the legendary dolmades (the delicious vine leaf rolls with rice).

All Greek recipes have a traditional origin and are related to the place of origin and its inhabitants.
