Greek yoghurt and honey. Yummy aubergine dip - or is that middle Eastern?

More information than you wanted?

Spanokopita (spinach and cheese pie made with filo pastry) and baklava (very sweet honey and nut pie made with filo pastry) if you're feeling creative (not that hard to do with a pack of frozen filo)

Tsziki (sp) so yummy with fresh bread. Also just a simple tomato and feta salad with onions and a light dressing.

lamb kebabs? anything with lamb in fact!! Nigella does a Greek lamb stew which is only Greek in as much as it is sprinkled with oregano and feta as far as I remember. Sounds fun!

Oh and Kalamata olives of course

Lots of Tatsziki (cucumber and yoghurt dip) Kiofdethes (greek meatballs v.nice) and if you like them Koubes (topedo shaped pastry filled with mince) lovely with a squeese of lemon and come in minatures...

bubblez Fri 19-May-06 18:49:07

tzakistes (green olives marinated in olive oil garlic and lemon....)

bubblez Fri 19-May-06 18:53:43

There is a lot to greek cooking 24 and still can only master the basics.... but there are some very good greek bakers shops or take out restaurants that will do all the hard work for ya... or if your me then mothers and auntys do fine

Just looked in my Greek Cookery book, in addition to the things other people have mentioned you could try baby meatballs, calamari, stuffed peppers, making a pastitsio are chopping it into smaller portions ( quite easy to make). Roasted peppers I think you can get them in jars where the pickles are in Sainsburys & Waitrose.
