Greek Food Facts

This is really not a story, its more of interesting facts about Greek food. Some of you may be wondering why I am writing this I am writing this because I have to know Greek facts about food for a 6th grade project I have to do by tomorrow so well here are some Greek Food Facts.


1.Ancient Greeks used Honey istead of suger becuase they didn't have suger back then.


2.What sets the Greek desserts apart, is their eastern influence. Whereas western desserts are more sponge and cream based, the Greek sweets are sugar based.
Many include the fillo pastry, which is paper thin sheets of pastry, layered upon each other to create a multi-layered effect.
Nuts are widely used in many desserts, and then once the dessert is baked, it is drenched in a sweet aromatic honey syrup, as in walnut cake - Karythopita.
Apart from the beautiful flavours it infuses, the syrup helps to preserve the dessert.


3.
Although we call these desserts - the Greeks refer to them as sweets - they are generally not eaten after a meal as we would in other western countries.
The Greeks rarely eat a dessert after a meal, if they do it is most likely to be whichever fruit is in season.
They will keep these desserts and bring them out during the day, along with a Greek coffee and a glass of iced water, especially when there is a visitor.
This way we can savour and enjoy them completely on their own, away from the fullness of a meal, as they are in themselves very filling and a truly sensational taste.
With many nuts - such as walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts and almonds being in abundance in Greece, it is no surprise to see these nuts used widely in their desserts.
Used in baklava and Kataifi, either rolled up as a filling in pastry or a small sprinkling over the top of other desserts.

I got all the information for my project from this link, click here for more!

Overall this is a great web and I will definitely come back for more information! Great Job with this web, you've made a big effort ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !!
