Exploring the history of greek cuisine

Greek cuisine is one of the most unique and celebrated cuisines in the world. The history and origins of Greek cuisine can be traced back to ancient times, with many of the dishes and ingredients still being used today. At Akres, our mission is to honor the rich tradition of Greek cuisine while bringing it into the 21st century with modern techniques and presentation.

Greek cuisine has a long and fascinating history that is closely tied to the culture and geography of the country. The cuisine has been influenced by a variety of factors, including the Mediterranean climate, our ancient tradition and of course all the cultures that we came in contact with. Many of the dishes that are popular today can be traced back hundreds or even thousands of years.

At Akres, we are proud to continue the tradition of Greek cuisine by using local, traditional recipes that have been passed down through generations. Our chefs have spent years perfecting the art of preparing Greek dishes, using the freshest ingredients and the latest cooking techniques to create dishes that are both authentic and innovative.

One of the key elements of Greek cuisine is the use of fresh, local ingredients. Greece has a rich agricultural tradition, with a variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are grown in the fertile soil of the country. At Akres, we take advantage of this bounty by sourcing our ingredients from local farmers and producers. This not only supports the local community but ensures that our dishes are as fresh and flavorful as possible.

Another hallmark of Greek cuisine is the use of traditional recipes that have been passed down through generations. These recipes often have a long and fascinating history, with each family having their own unique version. At Akres, we take great pride in using these traditional recipes and putting our own spin on them to create dishes that are both familiar and exciting.

At Akres, we also put a great deal of emphasis on presentation. While traditional Greek dishes are often simple and rustic, we believe that presentation is just as important as taste. We take the time to create beautiful, visually stunning dishes that are a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
