From spanakopita to roasted garlic tzatziki sauce - find plenty of Greek starter recipes to kick off your Mediterranean meal. We have filo pastry feta cheese pies, moreish meze recipes and loads more.
There are two keys to my version of this classic Greek recipe - straining the yoghurt for 24 hours and roasting the garlic. The former ensures that the tzatziki is a gorgeously rich (not runny) consistency, and the latter imparts a mellow garlic flavour. I use more than five cloves of garlic sometimes - it all depends on your mood!
This traditional Greek meze could not be easier to make, yet it always impresses guests! All you need is a block of feta and some crushed red chillies. This is also great made on the barbecue wrapped in foil. Serve with good crusty bread.
This Greek meze is perfect for entertaining, and the pastry could not be easier to make. Serve as a nibble or starter, and enjoy the leftovers for weeks to come - they freeze well after they're baked. Just defrost and pop them in a warm oven, and you'll think they're freshly baked.
This Greek yoghurt sauce made with cucumbers and fresh mint is a classic. Serve with kebabs, chips, crusty bread or warm pitta. You need to make this in advance but it still tastes really fresh.
This Greek-inspired version is great cut into wedges and served with crisp salad leaves.
