"GREEK FOOD is probably one of..." Greece Favorite Tip by Nice_Girl

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos

Favorite thing: GREEK FOOD is probably one of the best in the world. Rich and simple, olive oil and mixed herbs enhance this mediterranean food. Feta (ewe's cheese) is used in many recipes. A famous one is 'tiropita', a sort of ewe's cheese pie. Cheese pie are consumed by greek people for breakfast. Apple pie with cinnamon and sugar are very tasty and also eaten by greek people for breakfast. These pies are sold in 'bakery' with others specialties like spinach pie and white bread with grains. During Easter time, special breads and cookies are cooked to be offered with tinted eggs in red. Greece has a generous tradition for Easter, entire lambs are cooked to be shared with every people of the village.
