    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 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.

    Feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and black olives are blended in this full-flavoured Greek inspired dip. Serve as part of a meze spread with good crusty bread. Also great on sandwiches!

    This Greek-inspired version is great cut into wedges and served with crisp salad leaves.
