• Greek cuisine brings a fresher fare to the table

    2011-04-22

    The Mediterranean approach to the culinary arts is renowned for healthy and delicate dishes that still can fill a stomach well. Due to Greek culture embracing inter-generational connections and family-style dining, visitors may find themselves brushing shoulders with locals or fellow tourists when it's time to eat. Vacationers may experience all the coastal, natural culture Greece has to offer on their next trip abroad.

    Many ingredients in Greek cooking come from fresh sources within the country, reports the Boston Globe. Feta cheese tops many salads and entrees, and a side of tsatsiki is served often, which is a cool cucumber and yogurt mixture to help wash down several spicier dishes. Greeks utilize all parts of the animal, with restaurants often offering plates of sautéed liver or calf's brain as a delicacy.

    According to The New York Times, Maragro is a simple Greek eatery in Athens where seafood is the specialty. Here the owners serve up mullet fish fried crispy in olive oil and presented whole for a few delicate bites. Wine delivered in metal jugs washes down the meal, and dessert can't be missed, especially the doughy and sweet halvah.
