An Introduction to Greek Cuisine

December 19th, 2017

Greek cuisine encompasses some of the richest flavors of the region combined with thousands of years of tradition to form countless mouth-watering dishes. Though there are many interpretations of Greek cuisine, the bases of Greek food remain the same. Use our first blog post to learn about the essentials of Greece’s diverse cuisine and rich history!

Bread, olives and wine have been constant bases of the Greek cuisine going back thousands of years and have outlasted the test of time. As a nation of small-scale farmers, Greece is known for its incredibly fresh ingredients including fruits, grains, vegetables, nuts, oils, cheese and several spices. Serving a meal full of all these incredibly fresh ingredients is one of the many reasons Greek food is known as one of the best in the world. Many of the most beloved ingredients found in Greek food are also found in other Mediterranean cuisines including Turkish, Palestinian, and Portuguese food. Some of the staples of these cuisines include olives, olive oil, lemons, garlic, oregano, mint and thyme. These ingredients are the building blocks to great Greek cuisine and they are some of our finest ingredients here at Gre.Co.
