Treating yourself to some authentic Greek food in a restaurant is a great way to spend an evening. But you can also have authentic Greek food from your kitchen, and you don’t have to be Greek to do that.
For instance, you can prepare the national food of the Greeks in your own kitchen. We are going to prepare Fasolada or fasoulada or fasolia, which all mean the same thing. It is a soup of dry white beans, olive oil and vegetables. There are different international versions of this soup in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Although the origins of this soup is in ancient Greece. Fasolada, having no meat, is used as food and sacrifice given to the Greek God Apollo during the Pyanopsia Festival. If you want a meat version, do it the Italian way.
