It’s all Greek

And it’s never been so easy to in­te­grate into your cook­ing


It’s good that the say­ing, “It’s all Greek to me!” doesn’t ap­ply to Greek food. Here are four sim­ple ways to bring Greek flavours into your own kitchen:

Our sim­ple Souvlaki Sea­son­ing Mix is made with dried herbs and spices found in most kitchens. When com­bined with lemon juice and olive oil, it cre­ates a flavour­ful mari­nade for any type of meat.

Our Greek Lamb Chops uses sim­i­lar flavours, with the ad­di­tion of fresh gar­lic to give it more “oomph.” They are de­li­cious with Greek Tzatziki, which is spiced with onion, lemon, and just a dash of hot sauce. To keep your tzatziki thick, make sure you drain your cu­cum­bers com­pletely and use Greek yo­gurt or skyr.

Ouzo is of­ten re­ferred to as Greece’s na­tional drink. Our Greek Ouzo Mari­nade’s unique anise flavour can be en­joyed by both drinkers and tee­to­talers alike. Dill and crushed fen­nel seeds bring out the sweet, herby flavour of the liqueur. ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen’s col­umn on healthy eat­ing for busy fam­i­lies runs Wed­nes­days in the Cal­gary Her­ald’s food sec­tion.
