​Top 5 – Food in Greece

The Greek cuisine is considered one of the best in the world, due to the Mediterranean lifestyle. This country is lucky for its soil because it’s the main part in the world with so many olive trees that give the virgin olive oil. All Greeks use it in the kitchen for pretty much everything they cook!
