From the ancient times till today, the culinary tradition was one of the strongest elements of the Greek culture. In the antiquity, bread, wine and olive oil were the three main things to definitely have on the table during the meal time. Over centuries, the recipes in Greece evolved and were greatly influenced by other cultures. In fact, some of the most famous Greek dishes today, such as moussaka and tzatziki, have Arabic, Persian and Turkish roots.
Greek food is simple to make, colourful and nutritious. Olive oil and spices are used in almost every Greek recipe. Considered among the healthiest cuisines in the world, the Greek cuisine includes fresh seafood, vegetables, beans, herbs, pasta and meat, especially lamb and pork. Pies are also very popular dishes in Greece, especially the pies that are wrapped in filo pastry, such as spanakopita (spinach pie), tyropita (cheese pie) and kreatopita (meat pie).
