How to Cook dishes from Greece
Greece has a long history stretching back thousands of years, and during that history has been invaded many times (including by the Ottoman Turks who occupied the country for 400 years). As a result, Greek cuisine has absorbed influences from many sources, and some dishes (baklava and moussaka) are shared with and have Turkish names.
Greek cuisine is not just moussaka. While lamb is a traditional meat, favored for holidays and festivals, poultry, beef, and pork are also popular. Additionally, with Greece including many islands, and with no part of the Greek mainland more than 90 miles from the sea, fish and seafood are also Greek favorites. Greece's climate is favorable for growing of both olive and lemon, and these form an important part of Greek cuisine. Vegetables include aubergines and courgettes. Garlic, basil, oregano and thyme are widely used to add flavor to dishes. And finally, and by no means least, is Greece's famous feta cheese.
