Feta cheese is truly a Greek treasure and a staple ingredient in our traditional cuisine.
It’s fascinating how every week as I plan out the meals for my family, I find myself consistently gravitating towards dishes that incorporate some form of ground meat.
Greece is known for its tasty vegetables and beetroots are no exception.
These feta eggplant roll-ups are a Greek version of the classic Italian dish aubergine parmigiana - but using feta instead of parmesan and mozzarella! It’s one of those Greek meze dishes we almost always order in tavernas to make sure there are a few.
This recipe was cooked for us by some dear friends from Rhodes, when they visited us right before COVID kicked off and changed our lives! As a chef and his partner, they fed us a selection of tasty treats during their stay - but this was our ultimate.
I remember enjoying this at home in Rhodes through the summer as a child - with freshly-picked green beans from the garden, and even freshly picked tomatoes too! This stewed green beans dish (or Fasolakia Giaxni in Greek) is more than the sum of its.
This Mediterranean-style Shakshuka was actually thought out by my husband! He is not often found cooking, but he hit on a real win with this simple Shakshuka recipe when I was too tired and busy to cook one day, back in Rhodes.

This pasta salad is such a simple dish that it barely needs a recipe; that’s part of the reason I love to make it! The second reason is that it gets some nice veggies into the kids’ diet without any fuss - they love pasta in every form.
Tzatziki is probably one of those Greek recipes that needs no introduction! This famous dip is a creamy and refreshing mixture of thick Greek yoghurt, cucumber, garlic and olive oil.
I always do lots of research to make sure a recipe is exactly how I want; I usually try a few iterations, varying ingredients and quantities to finely tune the recipe.
Dolmadakia, or stuffed vine leaves, are probably something you’ve seen on the menu at a Greek restaurant, found in a deli, or have tried if you’ve ever visited Greece.
Feta-stuffed Florina peppers are a very popular side dish in my family! Every time we have a family gathering (pre-pandemic, anyway), we would each bring a meze dish to the feast…and this particular side would somehow always be present.
This simple and satisfying supper is one of the first “proper” meals I cooked for my husband when we got married! I had always been confident with all the egg options (always a go-to for our breakfasts), but I tended to stick to the safety of easy pasta.
This creamy zucchini penne (or courgette penne, for all my UK readers!) makes a healthy vegetable the star of the show.
