  • Our cuisine – eTwinning program OUR CUISINE Home page Breakfast Starters Main Dishes Desserts Festive recipes Photo gallery Bibliography About us Our students worked on a Greek and Polish cookery book which includes the most popular dishes in our countries. This is because we are of the opinion that the knowledge of food and meals is an unquestionable prerequisite to any face-to-face intercultural relations. Moreover, putting it into practice, i.e. cooking dishes and tasting them will also give our students much pleasure, which you will see in our short movies.

  • Our cuisine – eTwinning program Breakfast Greek Breakfast Home page Breakfast Starters Main Dishes Desserts Festive recipes Photo gallery Bibliography About us The word breakfast for many people (except the Greek people) means a complete meal which is consisted of eggs, bread, cereals, milk, coffee and juices. In comparison to us, where the word breakfast doesn’t mean anything. When people ask me what the Greek ones eat for breakfast the first answer that I have in mind is coffee and cigarettes. The reason why we don’t eat any breakfast might be because we wake up very early in the mornings due to our jobs duties. So as a result of the above we don’t have enough time for a good breakfast. So we prefer to drink some coffee than eat eggs, cereals et cetera. As far as student’s breakfast it is a similar situation. In my opinion we follow our parents’ habits and we don’t have any breakfast at all. We might buy something on our way to school. Unfortunately, such habits cause health problems. They put on weight because we are hungry at noon and we eat a lot at lunch. To sum up, we have got used to it and it is too difficult to change our habits as it seems no problem to us. In addition to all, for us our lunch and dinner time is more important! Polish Breakfast In Poland what breakfast we eat depends on what kind of people we are. Some of us don’t eat breakfast because we don’t have time to do that. Others just don’t like to eat so early. On the other hand, there are lot of people who cannot live without a big ration of food at the beginning of the day. We students usually buy something to eat at school even if we ate breakfast earlier (we just like to eat a lot). For breakfast we normally eat sandwiches with meat and cheese or toasts. We also have cereals. All in all, breakfast is important, if not the most important for us. If we don’t eat at home, we take our breakfast to school or work. Link to breakfast recipes

  • Our cuisine – eTwinning program The custom Home page Breakfast Starters Main Dishes Desserts Festive recipes Photo gallery Bibliography About us Vasilopita Ingredients: Method: 1 level tsp salt 1 kg flour blanched almonds Cover with a towel and leave it in a warm place for about an hour in order to let it rise. Once the dough has risen, beat the sugar with the yolks in a mixer. Pour in the rest of the milk, egg white, melted butter, mahlepi and lemon scraping. Knead the dough, adding flour gradually so that the dough does not become tough. 1 cup fresh milk 2 tsp yeast 4 eggs 1 cup butter 1½ cups sugar 1 sachet mahlepi grated lemon peel Pour half a cup of tepid milk in a large bowl and dissolve the yeast in it. Add half a cup of flour and mix it until it becomes dough. Shape it into balls and place them in a bowl. Cover them with a towel and leave in a warm place for three hours, until they double in size. Knead the dough for five minutes and place on buttered wax paper spread on a large round tray or two smaller ones. Cover the balls of dough and leave in a warm place for about two hours until they double in size. Beat together an egg yolk and a teaspoon of water and use this mixture to glaze the dough. Before placing in oven, use the blanched almonds to mark the dough with the numerals of the new year.
  • The custom of Vasilopita The history of new year cake or why we make new year cakes Dear friends, below we will explain to you the history of the vasilopita, a history that begins hundreds of years ago, 1,500 years ago roughly, in the city Caesarea of Kappadokias, in Asia Minor (western Turkey today). The Great King was despot of Caesarea and lived harmoniously with his fellow men, with love, understanding and mutual help. One day however, a hungry general - tyrant of the region asked him for all the treasures of the city of Caesarea, threatening that otherwise he would besiege the city to conquer and plunder it. Throughout the entire night the Great King prayed for God to save the city. At dawn the general decided to encircle Caesarea. He entered with his army and asked to see the Despot, who was found in the temple praying. With audacity and anger the unscrupulous general demanded the gathering of the gold of the city as well as other precious items that existed. The Great King answered that the people of his city did not have anything other than hunger and that they did not have anything to give to the general. But the general upon hearing the message demanded even more and threatened the king.
  • The custom of vasilopita The Christians of Caesarea loved their Despot and wanted to help him. They therefore gathered from their houses whatever gold they had and offered it to him. The general was furious and ordered his soldiers to attack the city. The Great King gathered all the gold that was offered by the citizens and presented them to the general in order to save his city from a massacre. However, the moment the general opened the treasures a miracle occurred. All assembled saw a bright burst of light followed by a brilliant rider dashing above the general and his army. Within a short time, the general and his army disappeared. The rider was Aghios Merkourios and the soldiers were his angels. Thus the city of Caesarea was saved. Then, however, the despot found himself in a difficult position! How was he to share the gold with the residents of the city and distribute it fairly? It was a very difficult task indeed. After praying, the Great King was given divine guidance and he called on his aides to bake small loaves of bread and place some gold coins inside each one of them. The surprise for the residents came when they were distributed the bread and they found gold coins inside for them to keep. This later turned into a New Year celebration which we still find today, with each Greek family cutting the vasilopita cake which contains a coin and which will bring luck to the person who finds it.ected the custom with the New Year cake.

  • The custom of christopsomo Christopsomo: is a Greek bread decorated with an early form of the Christian cross with ends that split and curl into circles. Sometimes initials, birth dates and ages are added to celebrate all occasions. It is a rich, round loaf scented with wine soaked orange and it sometimes contains mastiha, a dried pine resin. The bread is sometimes served with honey on Christmas eve. Families leave pieces of bread on the table believing that Christ will come and eat them during the night. During the 40 days of fasting, special loaves of Christopsomo, which translates to Christ's Bread, are prepared for the meals. The loaves are round and decorated with a cross, which people make symbols shaped in dough. It is considered a sacred tradition in Greek Orthodox homes, and the care with which it is made is said to ensure the well-being of the home in the year to come. Only the purest and most expensive ingredients are used. The bread is often decorated with pieces of dough formed into representations of the family's life. Traditionally on Christmas Eve every household would bake a Christopsomo and then decorated with engravings on the crust that represent aspects of the family's life and profession. In earlier times, Greek cooks baked large quantities of bread to last for 10-15 days, so baking just one or two loaves of Christopsomo the night before Christmas had special significance. The cook would start by crossing him/herself before starting the preparations, making this Christmas bread, which still is - considered by many to be a sacred task and great care is taken in its preparation. Raisins, nuts, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg are just a few of the taste treats that some recipes use for this traditional loaf.

  • Greek traditions about Easter Good Thursday • The housewives dye the Easter eggs. Red is the colour mainly used for dyeing the Easter eggs but many other colours, such as green, blue or yellow are also used. Good Friday • People eat vegetables or soup cooked in water only, on this day. In this way they fast and mourn for the death of Jesus Christ. In the evening they go to church and join the epitaph procession around the neighborhoods. Good Friday • Godfathers and godmothers give their godchildren gifts, chocolate Easter eggs and an Easter candle to hold in church during the service on the eve of Easter Sunday. Good Saturday • People go to church late at night holding their Easter candles. At midnight when the priest brings the good news of Jesus Christ's resurrection to the people, they exchange kisses and wishes. The wish exchanged is "Christ has risen!" and the other person confirms this by saying "Indeed he has!“ Early Easter Sunday • After the service people return home and have a traditional soup called mayiritsa. Easter Sunday • On this day people get together with friends and family, eat lamb on the spit and drink wine. They have a big celebration with traditional songs and dances.
  • Mediterranean Diet • The Secret of the Mediterranean's Lifelong Health Researchers have discovered that people in the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea exhibit strikingly low rates of heart disease compared to Americans and others. Extensive research in the past few years has isolated key dietary habits as a vital part of the vicinities lower rates of chronic disease. Dietary data from those parts of the Mediterranean region that in the recent past enjoyed the lowest recorded rates of chronic diseases and the highest adult life expectancy ate a diet like the " Mediterranean Diet Healthy Weight Plan" This diet is known as the Mediterranean diet, and it consists mostly of grains, fruits, beans, and vegetables. This style of eating includes little meat and plenty of olive oil. Researchers suggest that the live bacterial cultures of yogurt may also have contributed to the regions good health. One item commonly found in Mediterranean dishes is garlic. Garlic may help prevent blood clots, lower your cholesterol level, and protect you against cancer.
  • Mediterranean Diet The Mediterranean diet also includes moderate amounts of wine. Some researchers think this may account for Mediterranean s' healthy hearts. For men moderation is two glasses per day, for women moderation is one glass per day. There is a general consensus among health professionals that the Mediterranean Diet is healthier than the North European and American diet because more grains, such as spaghetti, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and olive oil are consumed. Moderate amounts of fish and cheese and very little red meat is consumed. Key features of the Mediterranean diet: High consumption of breads, pasta, rice, couscous, potent, bulgur and potatoes High consumption of fruits (3-4 pieces a day), legumes and vegetables (5 different varieties) Moderate amounts of grilled and steamed fish Moderate amounts of olive oil - consumed with fresh vegetables and on salads Small portions of lean red meat with no visible fat, lean pork Alcohol in small amounts High intake of antioxidants
