Hello everyone,

Just been looking at a few interesting facts about Greek food and I will be sharing some of the best ones with you.

For example, the Ancient Greeks were known to eat meals lying on their sides.

If you have any Greek food facts you would like to share then I would love to hear them.

Did you know that the origins of Greek food date back more than 2000 years but in all time, the recipes we know and love have barely changed?
