York: Great Greek cuisine from opulent ouzeri
Ancient Greek cuisine was dominated by three major ingredients; wheat, olive oil, and wine. Right up until modern times, fish was the main source of protein. Greek food is some of the oldest in the world, and Greek cuisine formed the basis for most of Europe's various cuisines. With the expansion of the Roman empire, Greek cuisine spread across the globe, as Roman food shared most of its characteristics and ingredients with Greek cooking.
The Ancient Greek poet Archestratus wrote the first cookbook in history in 320 BC. Since then, Greek food has evolved through various different cultural influences. Some common Greek dishes have been around since ancient times, like lentil soup. Others are now traditional recipes, despite meat being a fairly modern addition to Greek cuisine.
