The Greek Pantry

Written by litsa on. Posted in My thoughts, Recipes

Cooking any kind of food requires some advance preparation to be successful and to have fun. Here are the fundamentals of Greek cooking.

The Mediterranean way of cooking is a very pleasant way to enjoy the products of this blessed region.

They are products readily available in every supermarket. The life style of the region is a relaxed and have fun life style, the food is so easy and so delicious, that once you try a few recipes you will be in love with the simplicity and the amazing Taste. Get a Greek recipe book and I highly recommend “Take the taste of Greece with you” an award winner and start experimenting.
