Before you are here in Greece and actually on your private tour know what to order to eat while in the land of the 'famed' Mediterranean cuisine.
Every day we share our beautiful country's culture and cuisine. However, if you have never been to the Mediterranean perhaps you might not know what to look forward to. Your private guide, of course, will help you with your choice, but here is a little cheat sheet.
First of all, know that the Greeks wrote the first cook book and think that besides the non-rushed atmosphere, fresh herbs, olive oil, that the final element is the enjoyment of your company.
The Greeks love their wine (with wines on most of the islands being home made). So, when out in the cafes you will order a kilo or half kilo of 'krasi' (wine) aspro (white) or 'kokino' (red). If you only want maybe two glasses order a 'tetarto' (quarter kilo). With this you might order the appetizers in the form of dips. There are many such as: 'skordalia' (garlic puree) and 'tarama salata' (a dip made out of a blend of fish roe and bread), 'zadziki' (blend of yogurt-olive oil-garlic-cucumber). A 'horiaphtiki' (local Greek salad of olives, tomatoes, feta, and onions), a 'brizola' (porkchop), 'katopala' (chicken) 'rizzi' (rice) and desert of 'bakalava' (honey, filo,walnuts). And there you have it. You can comfortably enjoy your "Mediterranean" lunch.
