Greeks love food. And that is a good thing. Because otherwise holidays in Greece would certainly be only half as pleasurable. The delicious Greek specialities themselves already remind you of holidays.
Meet your friends at the one of the many traditional taverns and order the popular vine leaves, the so called Dolmades, as a starter. Also recommendable are the spicy sausages (Loukaniko), Tzatziki or Spanokopita – a pie filled with spinach and cheese, wrapped in filo pastry. Be delighted by the great choice of bread, fish roe or Skordalia dips, consisting of mashed potatoes and garlic.
For the main course we suggest to try Mousakas, a type of casserole with Zucchini, minced meat and potatoes, whose juicy and delicious taste stimulates body and soul. Souvlaki on the contrary pampers the palate. These spits of pork, whose marinade has a wonderful smell of oregano, lemon, salt and pepper, by the way are THE highlight of the Greek cooks.
And for dessert? Try Halvas. They convince with their nutty, fine flavour. You should also taste Baklavas, a delicious pastry made of walnuts, almonds and pistachios or Greek yoghurt with honey, nuts and amarettini. What would fit better to this than a Mokka for a sweet-bitter combination? Or maybe you would like to sweeten your journey with Mavrodaphe, a Greek sweet wine?
No matter how you will decide: you should in no case miss this moment on your trip. „Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food“ – Socrates once said, and what better place to do this than in Greece, the country of the culinary temptations? Therefore combine an exciting and relaxing journey to Greece with freedom, zest for life and treat. This is made possible by tourmix.eu. Choose from our beautiful island hopping and sailing trips!
