Greek cooking has an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are a result of literally thousands of years of living, cooking, and eating. Each Greek meal is fresh and inviting, and takes you on a journey through Greece's history.
The cooking methods and basic ingredients have changed little over time. Even the names of certain dishes remain the same. Bread, olives and olive oil, and wine have been the backbone of the Greek diet for many centuries, just as they do today.
