Fresh tomatoes and feta cheese tart
In the Greek cuisine the list of pies is endless. Any kind of ingredient can become a pie, plus every region in the country has its own way of making pies. We are a nation that adores pies! No doubt about that!
These little, golden cheese pies that we’ve got for you today are the perfect appetizer…or snack. Made with philo pastry, they’re perfectly crispy on the outside, whereas on the inside hides a delicious creamy filling, slightly tangy and salty thanks to the feta cheese which is the key ingredient.
We’ve posted a lot of Greek pies on this blog, all of them wonderful, scrumptious and ideal as comfort food. But the one we’ve got for you today is the one that you’ve been waiting for! (And wondering why it took us so long to post it!)
And even if autumn is to end in a few days, pumpkins are still the season’s favorite ingredient. Combine them with feta cheese and you get one of the finest Greek savory pies!
It’s the season for artichokes and as all Mediterranean people Greeks too, adore cooking this lovely, unique in its taste vegetable.
There’s no doubt that pies, being an essential part of the Greek cuisine, are one of our most favorite comfort foods. Moreover –and there’s no doubt about that either- pies are the most popular street food in the country. Wherever you go in Greece you will always bump into a pie shop!
Savory pies are more than common in Greek cuisine. In fact, they are a staple. The most famous is the cheese pie, the one that we prefer mostly as a street food. Everywhere, at every corner of our cities and towns, you can find a “tiropitádiko”, which is basically a small shop with no tables to sit, and where you can be a cheese pie or other kinds of pie and eat them as a street food. As a matter of fact, many Greeks prefer them as a part of their breakfast on the foot –something that we are very used of.
