Capers and lemon is just an unbeatable combination. All you need to do for this recipe is boil pasta (I prefer penne or spaghetti). Then sautée shallots, garlic, lemon, capers and butter. Combine the two and you're all set! Season with salt, cracked perpper, oregano and kefalotiri cheese.

This pasta dish is so light and filling. I tend to sprinkle with crumbled feta and sliced Kalamata olives...I'm a typical Greek cook..always feta and olives!! Serve with a delicious Greek wine and you have a winning dinner!! Kali Orexi!!

Yes, anything with feta on top and a little drizzle of olive oil is always how I garnish everything

I agree!!! This dish is so simple, too. I sprinkle it with kefalotiri if I have it, if not then I just use either feta cheese or even Romano (Italian, but a sheep cheese so it has some similarities in flavor to some of the Greek sheep cheeses).
 

Seasoned goat wrapped in parchment paper

This dish is phenomenal! The goat is seasoned with thyme, rosemary, oregano, salt, and pepper and wrapped in parchment paper to keep all of the juices and seasoning inside the meat. I am not sure what the red berries are, but they didn’t have a very strong flavor. Of course, it is served with potatoes that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I finished the mail off with a great baklava. Cheers my friends!!

What are your favorite Greek dishes?

Please drop some suggestions below! I’ve been wanting to try out some new dishes. I’m noticing that many taverns I’ve been visiting are serving the same things and I’d like to try something more unique. I love the classics (meze, souvlaki, moussaka etc.) but it’s time for some exploring!!

Beautiful lamb shank and lavraki

This dinner was absolutely exquisite! It was a lovely roasted lamb shake, with small pieces of pasta. We also ordered a grilled lavraki which was one of the best I’ve ever had in my life. I just can’t get enough of Greek food, it’s always so fresh and cooked to perfection. Greetings from my holiday!

Loukoumades are the best shareable dessert

Loukoumades are Greek balls of fried dough covered in honey or syrup and cinnamon. Nowadays, there are many different variations and you can order these with Nutella, pistachio, and different sweets on top. Sometimes I like to get mine with ice cream as well. They’re perfect for sharing, and kids love them!

Greek snacks to bring on your road trip

There are so many Greek snacks that you could bring on your trips and road trips this summer! The first one that I recommend is spanakopita of course. This is a classic and will never disappoint. Other types of pitas are great as well such as tiropita and kreatopita. For sweet snacks I recommend pasteli, papadopoulos cookies and rice pudding. You can buy all of these on the go in Greece if you're on a road trip in Crete or on the mainland and you can also make them at home to bring along.
