Greek Cookery

A collection of all my greek recipes, or recipes that are especially popular in Greece (hence the 'au gratins' and the middle-eastern mix). My aim is not only to include the recipes Greece is known for, but to also reflect modern life here in Greece.

These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.

Recipe #87782

This well-known Greek 'meze' is good in so many different ways...read on...

Recipe #59336

This is the most delicious salad - fresh and wonderful-tasting. FYI, lettuce can very much be a part of any greek salad - if you want it to. We like lettuce in my family and I often add it. It would not be 'authentic' in a Horiatiki (village) salad, but who cares?

Recipe #90975

Nothing fancy about this dish - just good eating. Round off with some feta cheese and crusty bread.

Recipe #81968

Lemony-herbal chicken that roasts painlessly...oven-roasted garlicky potatoes - crisp on the outside, butter-soft on the inside. This recipe never receives anything but raves!

Recipe #59469

A great pasta and ground beef casserole. Hearty and delicious. The beauty of this recipe (besides great taste) is it's ability to freeze (and defrost) so well, with no loss of flavour, making it ideal for OAMC (once a month cooking).

Recipe #59733

The secret to my spanakopita is 3 kinds of onion - red onion, spring onions and leek. If you are lacking one, just add more of the others, but this is the 'secret ingredient' to an excellent pie. Enjoy!

Recipe #84770

This is the way I do souvlaki or shish kebab - and I mean the sandwich with pita bread you can find on nearly every street corner in Greece, not just the skewered meat. This is the best! Prep time does not include marinating time. OAMC instructions provided.

Recipe #81725

Healthful and hearty. A good soup to make a lot of and have as a stand-by in the freezer for a quick, nutritious meal.

Recipe #102620

Traditionally Greek. Always good. Once baked, the baklava has to stand for 3 hours to overnight to absorb the syrup into its layers. Whereas it is most common to find baklava made entirely with walnuts here in Greece, I prefer a combination with almonds. Sometimes I'll make the baklava using pistachios, or sometimes a 1/2-1/2 mixture of pistachios and almonds. They're all great variations on a delicious theme.

Recipe #59863

This is a fantastic appetizer and, like all my favourite recipes, ridiculously easy.

Recipe #67949

My take on traditional moussaka. The beauty of this recipe (besides great taste) is it's ability to freeze (and defrost) so well, with no loss of flavour, making it ideal for OAMC (once a month cooking). Note: Greeks do not eat their food piping hot out of the oven - especially in the summer heat. Food is served just warm or at room temperature (but cooked that day - otherwise it is reheated to freshen it). Flavour is more pronounced at this temperature.

Recipe #59130

A traditional Greek vegetarian dish. Delicious and easy. Great to do when you have a bumper crop of zucchini on hand. Olive oil adds a great flavour element to the dish, and also adds extra calories as Briami is considered a 'main dish' here in Greece. If you choose to serve it as a side, you can cut back some on the olive oil. The servings specified are considering it as a vegetarian main dish. If you're having it as a side, either cut back, or plan on getting more servings out of it.

Recipe #59083

This fish dish has bold, Mediterranean flavours. It is also gorgeous to look at. Accompany with a good white wine and lots of crusty bread, cause the sauce is unbelievable.

Recipe #76684

Greek salads are usually only dressed with olive oil and maybe lemon juice or red-wine vinegar. But this dressing is made of 'Greek' ingredients so, it's my Greek Dressing.

Recipe #59898

Falafel have got to be the tastiest little fritters ever devised by a cook - and they're good for you too! The Taratoor Sauce also makes a great dipping sauce for crudites, so don't just make it for falafel. The chickpeas do need to soak for at least 12 hours, so take that into consideration. Otherwise, very easy.

Recipe #72814

This is a traditional Easter bread served in Greece to break the Lenten fast. It is traditionally braided, with a red-dyed*, hard-boiled egg inserted at one end, and then baked. Beautiful to look at - delicious to eat. Like many yeast breads, these loaves require two risings, so take that into consideration when timing to make them. I like to eat it most at breakfast, with a piece of graviera (a Greek cheese resembling Swiss) and a huge glass of ice-cold milk. A bite of tsoureki; a nibble of cheese; a swallow of cold milk - heaven!!!

Recipe #87775

Stunning visually. Delightful to eat. Good for you, too.

Recipe #166623

Delicious little cheese parcels. Take my advice and double the recipe - there won't be any left.

Recipe #120813

A traditional greek roast for a Sunday dinner.

Recipe #59940
