There's something very comforting about Greek food. Perhaps it's to do with fond holiday memories, not to mention the robust flavours, mezes and generously proportioned dishes.

Whilst many Greek food recipes are traditional there is usually some regional variation in the ingredients used. We have chosen some simple homemade recipes for you to try, from stuffed vine leaves and tzatziki to old favourites like moussaka and meatballs. 

Re-live your holiday moments with the selection of carefully chosen Greek food recipes below which give you a breadth of choice across appetizers and main courses for a complete dinner. Whether you are a lamb or seafood lover all these dishes are designed to get your taste buds going.

Tomorrow we'll be posting some honey laden Greek desserts. Keep an eye out.

Stuffed Vine Leaves (Dolmades)

A classic Greek appetizer, Dolmades make great finger food of individual rice packed parcels wrapped up in vine leaves. There's something distinctly moreish about them.


No Greek dinner would be complete without a tzatziki dip. A simple combination of cucumber, garlic and yoghurt. Add in a taramosalata (fish roe dip), aubergine dip and fava dip to the equation and you're all set. 

Eggplant Moussaka with Sheep's Milk Cheese

A really goood moussaka is what comfort food is made of. An iconic Greek dish made of layers of aubergine, mincemeat, potato and tomatoes and spices, topped off with bechamel sauce and sheep's cheese and baked.

Greek Meatballs

Lamb meatballs combined with classic mediterranean ingredients of tomato and olives. You can't go wrong with this tasty crowd pleaser. 

Greek Shrimp Gratin

A Greek style shrimp gratin this can all be put in the oven and enjoyed piping hot in an earthenware dish at the table.

Greek Salad

No explanation needed, nothing captures Greek flavours like the freshest of Greek salads.
