Top 5 Greek Dishes of All Time

Since the coronavirus pandemic is still raging in the US, most countries, including Greece, have banned American travelers. But even if you can’t make it to Greece this summer, you can still enjoy the cuisine right at home. Here are the top 5 Greek dishes that you can either make at home or enjoy at a local, take-out only, Greek restaurant.

Taramasalata

Taramasalata is a Greek dip or spread made from salted and cured fish roe, olive oil, lemon juice and soaked bread. Of course, the fish roe is the main ingredient, so if you can find it at a local store, you can blend the ingredients together and enjoy it at home. Usually, taramasalata is spread on bread, but you can also choose to use crackers or little pieces of toast.

Olives in olive oil

Head to the preserved food section of the grocery store for olives in olive oil. You can get them plain or in various flavors (garlic, peppers, etc). Or, you can put your own spin on the dish by buying unflavored olives and adding whatever seasoning or spices you have at home. This ultimate Greek appetizer goes great with a glass of wine right before dinner.

Dolmadakia

You probably know dolmadakia as stuffed grape leaves. Most grocery stores sell them, so you won’t have to learn how to roll the leaves to enjoy this appetizer. But if you have the time, there are lots of tutorial videos out there on how to roll, fold, and make your own dolmadakia. In Greece, grape leaves are typically stuffed with herbs and rice. Other cuisines, like Lebanese, also put ground meat inside.

Octopus

Pan-fried octopus with tomatoes, garlic, onions, and red wine vinegar is a beloved dish in Greece. And it’s easy to make at home, that is, if you can find octopus meat at the market. It makes a great appetizer or main course, depending on how you serve it and how much you plan on eating. Pair it with ouzo, a Greek aperitif, for the perfect finishing touch.

Baklava

If you have the patience and skill to make baklava at home, kudos to you! But making this iconic pastry made from layers upon layers of filo dough is a time-consuming endeavor. You’re probably better off buying a batch at the local bakery. Still, you won’t want to miss out on this sticky, sweet treat. The layers of filo in baklava are held together by nuts, syrup, and honey. Enjoy this dessert with a cup of hot coffee or tea to cut through the sweetness.

Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth

I believe that the poet is necessarily an anarchist, and that he must oppose all organized conceptions of the State, not only those which we inherit from the past, but equally those which are imposed on people in the name of the future. ~ Herbert Read, “Poetry and Anarchism” (1938)
