Top 10 Greek Pantry Items for Your Home

by Mary Papoulias-Platis

This is my Top 10 Greek Pantry Items that will help you create dishes for your friends and family. With these staples you can make just about anything ”Greek” and with a few recipes on hand you are ready to go.  Of course you’ll need to add your protein, fresh vegetables, and staples like bread, milk, flour, and herbs.

To help you, I’ve included recipe posts for you to choose from in which I used these staples, so you can begin your journey in cooking. Just keep in mind a recipe is there to guide you so you may add your unique touch. Use your fresh herbs such as oregano, parsley, and dill. They add a great addition to any Greek recipe. And I try and find orange orange for my pastries, since citrus is so important in the Greek Diet. If you can’t find it, any honey will do.
