About Greek food recipes and more

One of the most popular Greek Recipes is the Gyro sandwich (also known as doner kebab or a souvlaki). Another super-famous greek recipe is Moussaka which consists of layers of roasted eggplant and minced meat topped with béchamel sauce. Traditional Greek Salad calls for fresh garden tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, red onion and feta cheese plus oregano & extra virgin olive oil to dress it up. Last but not least you must try Baklava, the Greek dessert dressed up with sweet honey and nuts.

Gyro is healthier than other sandwiches

Compared to a traditional hamburger which has about 45% calories from fat, a 150 gr serving of a gyro contains 25% calories from fat. Even though it contains less fat, it’s loaded with tonnes of protein. The average calorie count in a Greek Gyro is around 350-400 for each serving. In addition to being high in protein and low in calories, this traditional Greek sandwich provides essential nutrients such as iron, zinc, vitamin B1 & B6 and other minerals like selenium and calcium. Furthermore, you’ll get an impressive amount of fibre from your Greek gyro!

Greek yoghurt good for Health

Greek yoghurt is making headlines for its great taste and health benefits. The first known maker of Greek yoghurt was located in Vermont by an immigrant from Greece, who had learned how to make it while overseas. By straining out the whey, this man discovered that what remained was a creamy dream come true; thicker than American-style yoghurts yet not as thick as most cheese curds. This new product became so popular among his neighbours that production increased rapidly. Even Thomas Jefferson tried the rich and creamy treat, calling it “a luxury beyond all calculation.” It wasn’t long before major food companies got involved with mass-producing Greek Yoghurt (and adding their own ingredients). Now it’s sold in tubs and comes in a variety of flavours, including low-fat fruit varieties.

The right combination of ingredients can make each recipe unique, rich and aromatic while allowing one to enjoy a healthy lifestyle at the same time!

Popular greek yoghurt worldwide

Greek yoghurt has just begun its journey throughout the world; the first samples were presented to modern Greeks by the Byzantine princess Halide Edip, daughter of an Ottoman general, who was sent to America in order to study. Upon returning home she introduced this new tasty dish with the help of some friends.

The first Greek yoghurt production line was established in Greece by John & Bobby Costas in 1942 while working for their father who owned a dairy company. Due to high demand, they decided to open their own company which they named FAGE after a mountain pass near the place where it all began. In the past years, Greek Yoghourt has reached far beyond Greek borders and can be found in most international marketplaces.
