Let’s travel! Where? To Greece! To sunny, hospitable Greece, where, as a famous saying says, there is everything.
As you’ve already understood, today we are going to cook a Greek dish – Tabouli Salad with Feta and Couscous.
Tabouli and couscous are more typical for the southern Mediterranean cuisine, and for Greek cuisine in particular. But the most important and ‘most Greek’ ingredient on this salad is feta. It is feta that gives such a rich and incredible taste to this salad.
It is cheese that is a pride and joy of Greek cuisine. Greece produces more than 50 sorts of cheese! Greeks are also the biggest consumers of cheese, each persons eats approximately 25 kg of cheese per year.
Typical Greek food is simple, full-flavoured and rich in colours. Despite the great influence of Turkey to Greek cuisine, it managed to create its own authentic dishes and traditions.
So, let’s cook a salad, pour a glass of Greek wine and here we are, in Greece. And I can assure you that thoughts are material!
