The movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” didn’t exaggerate when it portrayed the role that food plays amongst Greeks. Greeks love food and have taken meal preparation to a whole ‘nuther level. For Greek women, being regarded as a good cook is like winning Gold in the Olympics (which Greeks invented, in case you didn’t know). It’s not about fancy. It’s about looking appetizing, being tasty, filling you up, while being resourceful, and all at once. It’s about preparing a meal where everyone actually believes you when you say you “slaved over a hot stove all day”. And in the end, it’s really all about love.
