Dolmades: Delicious vine leaves wrapped around herb-infused rice
Spanakopita: Spinach pies with a touch of creamy, salty feta all wrapped up in pastry
Tzatziki: This is the accompaniment of many Greek dishes. A classic Greek yogurt infused with garlic, cucumber, and herbs. Perfect for dipping those dolmades and pies into!
Melitzanes Papoutsakia: "little eggplant shoes" you won't be wearing these tasty shoes though! Roasted eggplant topped with a fragrant tomato and beef/mushroom mince and covered in creamy béchamel.
Portokalopita: An all-time favorite for many Greeks, this sticky, soft orange "pie" is made from phyllo pastry, oranges, and cinnamon. If you can make this you'll never be without friends.
