Greek Dishes
Greek Food and what it looks like...

Matt and Amarandi BarrettHere is a series of photos I have taken of Greek dishes from back in the days when digital cameras were 1.2 megapixels and you did not want to put big photos on your web page because everyone had dial-up and large photos would make the page load very slowly. However, as dated as it is, this page is actually kind of useful for getting an idea of what the different Greek foods look like so rather than delete them and post new larger photos I have decided to keep them. Generally when I sit down for a meal my first impulse is not to take a picture of what I am about to eat but lately I have been more likely to do it, especially during the day when we eat outdoors and the pictures actually come out.  There have been numerous times when I have half finished an incredible dish and realized too late that I should have taken a picture before it looked like a grizzly pile of bones, shells or stems. But anyway these pictures that I do have will certainly show you that there is a great variety of food in Greece. I have included the names of the restaurants where I have taken the picture of each dish, some of them not in Athens. But many of these dishes can be found anywhere. I also would like to add that my model, Amarandi Barrett is now 24 years old.
