Greek dinner

Dinner is the most important meal in the Greek culture and has been since ancient times. It is considered a very special moment, when the family gathers together around the dinner table and discusses what happened during the day. The table is generously decorated with a variety of “meze” including eggs from quail and hens, fish, olives, cheeses, bread, figs and any type of vegetables they grew that specific season, such as arugula, asparagus, tomatoes, cucumbers and many more.
