This is Why Greek Food is Awesome ...

When we think Mediterranean food, we usually assume Italian and Provencal.

It is such a shame that Greek food doesn’t get more attention.

Greek food is missing from TV cooking shows in a big way, yet it’s completely delicious.

There’s more to Greek food than gyros and mezze.

There’s an emphasis on communal eating and it makes the most of fabulous Mediterranean produce enhanced with aromatic herbs and fragrant Greek olive oil.

Are you ready to be turned on to Greek food in a big way?
