Mediterranean cuisine is often touted as among the healthiest in the world. It’s also undeniably delicious! The Mediterranean of course covers a multitude of culinary traditions – but Greek food is among the most celebrated. Greek cooking makes the most of what’s available locally – the country produces arguably the best olive oil in the world and is famed for its mezze dishes – the Greek equivalent of tapas. Think Dolmades (stuffed vine leaves), spanakopita (spinach & feta pie) and of course hummus. Meze dishes are best served with an aperitif and yes you guessed it, that drink would be Ouzo! Each Greek region has its own drinks, however – in the north it is Tsipouro, in Crete, Raki. Everyday food places a great emphasis on legumes, healthy grains, fish, yoghurt and meat all of which make for one of the most varied and delicious cuisines in the world!
