A Laconian Twist on Favorite Greek Foods
Greek food in Laconia: Spring
As we are approaching Spring we are also approaching one of the biggest feast days in Greece: Easter. Today marked the first day of the Lenten period which is called Kathara Deftera, or, "Clean Monday," in Greek. It marks the first of 40 days of fasting from meat and dairy products. For this reason, we've got two recommendations for what to eat in Greece in the Spring time in Greece; one for during lent, and the other for when the fast is broken and the feast begins!
My favorite beach in Greece.
For many travelers, time is money. When you're booking trips to the islands, being pressed for time can be one of your worst enemies. Greek ferry schedules are a bit odd, as most boats leave in the wee hours of the morning from the mainland ports and return back from the islands very late at night.
A taverna is not to be confused with a tavern. Tavernas are uniquely Greek restaurants, often small and intimate. The taverna is an integral part of Greek cuisine and of Greek culture.
