Greek foods to bring to class?!

Question: Greek foods to bring to class?
In my geography class we are each doing our own country and bringing food for it. I chose Greece for my country... I did try to look up Greek foods but I'm not really sure what would be more "appropriate" to bring to school... any ideas?

These are very easy to make and travel friendly, you could double it and you could substitute feta for goat cheese. Either way it's still a Greek dish!4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
2 large (1 pound each) onions, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon(s) sugar
1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
1/4 teaspoon(s) dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoon(s) dried thyme
4 (6-inch) pitas, sliced horizontally in half
7 ounce(s) soft goat cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh parsley leaves



1.In nonstick 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add onions, sugar, and salt, and cook 15 minutes or until very soft, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 20 minutes longer or until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently.
2.In cup, stir remaining 2 tablespoons oil with tarragon and thyme. Brush cut sides of pitas with herb mixture; spread with goat cheese, then top with caramelized onions.
3.Place pitas, topping-side up, on grill over low heat, and cook 3 minutes or until bottoms are crisp and topping is heated through. Sprinkle with parsley and cut each into 4 wedges to serve.


Well being part greek, i know a handful of foods. greeks happen to be big lamb eaters so lamb chucks marinated with olive oil and oregano and sea salt should do the trick. and spinacopita. basically they are spinach pockets, i'm not sure if everyone likes spinach so replace it with feta cheese. take philo dough and unfold it. mix in a bowl feta cheese, olive oil, sea salt and oregano and other spices. then take 8 layers of the philo and put a tbl spoon of the feta cheese mix on one end length wise, grab the bottom right corner and fold it over to the other side until u make a right triangle then continue folding with the corner on the left of the right triangle. continue this process until u run out of philo dough then bast on olive oil lighty then bake the triangles.

Enjoy. plus go to google and type in "simple greek food"

I think baklava would be perfect!

You can make it- it takes a few minutes, but it's soo worth it. :)…

Cut the baklava into whatever size you think would be good for sharing with the whole class.

Here's a more in-depth recipe, but it has some helpful tips on cutting the baklava:…

Everyone likes desserts..haha. Just be sure to mention that it has nuts- in case anyone has an allergy.

I can only think of souvlaki and dishes with phyllo pastry.

Souvlaki is basically a greek kebab. So it needs to be hot, I think. I once made it with yogurt. I do not know if that is the original way...

Phyllo pastry is a paper thin pastry made from flour. It is used in modern French cuisine too. I like this pastry to make millefeuille with. It is rather difficult to make. It is so thin that it easily gets dry. It is not as heavy as puff or shortcrust pastry. It's more like the pastry for spring rolls.

dolmas (grape leaves with i think a rice stuffing)
tsatziki (greek yogurt and garlic and cucumber YUM)
baklava (too sweet for me but many people love it)
kebabs (lamb etc)


I know a couple are feta cheese and tapas, and maybe pita bread
