A lot of our dishes have certain ingredients in common. These oils, herbs, and spices are what make our cuisine unique throughout the world. When you crack open your cookbook or search the web for Mediterranean food, these will come up quite often:

  • Olives and Olive Oil – The heart and soul of Mediterranean food. Olives and olive oil are one of the most common ingredients you can find when it comes to cooking. It not only makes our food taste amazing, but it is healthy for the heart and lowers cholesterol. The oil is perfect for cooking, frying, sautéing, seasoning, dipping, and so much more.
  • Herbs and Spices – You find that many ingredients call for herbs and spices like basil, cilantro, fennel, saffron, garlic, mint, thyme, sea salt, sage, parsley, and more. Keep your herbs and spice well stocked if you want to make a lot of Mediterranean meals at home.
  • Nuts – We introduce a variety of nuts into our meals, making them unique in nature. These not only provide a different taste, but the health benefits reduce the risk of heart disease. Some nuts used in our meals include pecans, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, and walnuts.
  • Feta Cheese – If you visit our menu, you notice a lot of feta cheese in the ingredients. Trust us, it’s delicious. It’s perfect for any of our salads and pastries.
  • Fish, Lamb, or Goat – If you are planning on grilling or making stews in the Mediterranean style, these meats are what you will need. Our Mediterranean meals are made up of these meats. Introducing them into your diet will change up the usual taste of chicken and beef.
