With Greek Easter just around the corner, I'm getting excited to celebrate with family and friends. One of my favorite parts of this holiday is the delicious feast we enjoy together. I'm curious to hear what dishes everyone serves at their Greek Easter gatherings.

Whether you have cherished family recipes passed down through generations or you're trying something new this year, I'd love to hear about it. From traditional favorites like lamb and tzatziki to mouthwatering desserts like baklava and tsoureki, every dish adds to the festive atmosphere.

So, what's on your Greek Easter menu this year? Are there any must-have dishes or special treats that you look forward to? Feel free to share recipes, tips, or simply your excitement for the upcoming celebration. Let's swap ideas and inspire each other to make this Greek Easter memorable!

Us? We are grilling a leg of lamb and serving it with lemon potatoes and fasolakia. For dessert we are doing some kind of a chocolate cake and of course koulourakia.
 
This year our menu is:
  • Grilled leg of lamb (only having five people)
  • Pastitsio
  • Easter sweet bread (our family does kouloura rolls with a dough similar to tsoureki)
  • Spanakopita
  • Roasted potatoes
  • Salad
  • koulourakia for dessert, plus cake and ice cream
  • Red eggs
 

What makes Greek yogurt so special?

I've recently started seeing Greek yogurt everywhere—from grocery store aisles to recipes and even fitness blogs. It seems like it's become a major trend, but I'm curious to know more about it. What makes Greek yogurt so special compared to regular yogurt? Does it really offer more nutritional benefits, or is it just a fad?

I’ve heard it has a thicker texture and is higher in protein, but I’d love to hear from people who regularly consume it or have done their own research. Are there particular brands you recommend? Any specific health benefits or potential downsides I should be aware of?

Top herbal teas popular in Greece?

Could anyone share insights or recommendations on which herbal teas are the most popular or cherished in Greece? I'm particularly interested in teas that are unique to the region or have a special place in Greek culture and wellness practices.

Also, if you have any suggestions on where I might purchase these teas, especially if they're available online, that would be incredibly helpful! I'm eager to try making some of these teas at home and experiencing a taste of Greek herbal tradition.

Thank you in advance for your help! I’m looking forward to exploring your suggestions and hopefully discovering some new favorite teas.

Iconic Greek Dishes to Try in Greece and at Home

I'm planning a trip to Greece soon and am incredibly excited about eating meals there. I also love to find Greek restaurants near where I love. I want to make sure I tru all the essentials!

Could you please share some recommendations on the must-try Greek dishes? Whether it's a classic main course, a delightful dessert, or a beloved street food, I'm eager to explore it all!

Salt Cod in Greek Cooking?

How is salt cod, or Bakaliaros, used in Greek cooking? I remember my grandmother using it and I forget for what...

Could anyone share what specific dishes in Greek cuisine feature salt cod as the key ingredient? How is it typically prepared and served in Greece? Are there any traditional recipes or unique cooking methods that highlight the flavor and texture of salt cod in Greek cooking? I know a lot of other cultures use it, too.

I believe understanding the culinary uses of salt cod in Greece could offer deeper insights into the country’s culture and traditions. Plus, it would be great to try and replicate some of these dishes at home!

Can you use frozen vegetables for Greek dishes?

There are two Greek dishes that I enjoy a lot and like to make a lot - fasolakia and the baked vegetables with the variety.

It's not always realistic for me to make them, though, because of the vegetable situation.

Is it okay to use frozen veggies? These are washed and chopped - they're basically ready to go - so it would save me a lot of time!
