Why should you try Greek barbecue?

Flavour explosion: Greek cuisine is known for its vibrant flavours and fresh ingredients. Greek barbecue captures the essence of this culinary heritage by blending meat, vegetables and cheeses with tempting Mediterranean herbs, olive oil and citrus accents. Each bite is bursting with authentic and robust flavours that will leave you craving for more.

Social dining experience: Greek barbecues are a feast for the senses and a celebration of community. It is a time to gather with loved ones, share stories and enjoy a leisurely meal together. The lively atmosphere, music and laughter create an unforgettable dining experience that reflects the warm and welcoming nature of Greek culture.

Mastery of grilling: Greek barbecue techniques, such as Souvlaki and Souvla, have been perfected over generations. The art of marinating and grilling meat to tender perfection on an open fire is a true testament to Greek culinary expertise. During a Greek barbecue, you can enjoy the results of these time-honoured techniques.

Delicious ideas for your Greek barbecue:

Souvlaki: A Greek barbecue staple, Souvlaki refers to skewers of marinated and grilled meat. The meat is usually prepared with lamb or pork and infused with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and Mediterranean herbs. The result is juicy, succulent and bursting with flavour.

Gyro: Gyro is a popular Greek street dish of roasted meat, traditionally pork or chicken, cut into thin slices and served in a warm pita bread with tzatziki sauce, fresh tomatoes, onions and a pinch of herbs. The combination of tender meat, spicy sauce and crispy pita makes for a delicious and satisfying hand-held meal.

Greek lamb chops: Perfectly grilled, Greek lamb chops are marinated with olive oil, lemon zest, garlic and aromatic herbs such as rosemary and oregano. The result is tender, juicy chops with a hint of citrus and herbs.

Grilled halloumi: Halloumi, a semi-hard cheese native to Cyprus, is a favourite ingredient in Greek cuisine. Grilling halloumi until golden brown creates a delicious contrast between its crispy exterior and soft, sticky interior. Serve it alongside a fresh Greek salad for a perfect combination of flavours and textures.

Octopus Souvlaki: Experience the unique flavours of the sea with octopus souvlaki. Marinated in olive oil, lemon juice and herbs, the octopus is grilled until tender, giving the dish a delicate smokiness. Enjoy it with a little lemon and a drizzle of olive oil for a true taste of the Greek coast.

Grilled vegetables: Greek barbecues are not just about meat. Grilling a range of vegetables, such as peppers, aubergines, courgettes and onions, brings out their natural sweetness and adds a smoky charm. Mix them with olive oil, herbs and a little feta for a delicious vegetarian option.
