Traditionally each area in Greece has its own traditional Greek Christmas food. In northern parts (the mountainside) the Christmas dinner consists of comfort stews and soups while in other areas, they serve roasted pork or beef along with homemade rustic pies.
As for desserts? There's really nothing better to serve on Christmas day than Greek desserts. Warm, comforting full of spices and aromas very Christmas-y! So here's what you would find on a Greek Christmas table...
This hearty stew is served on Christmas day in many areas around Greece. The cabbage leaves symbolize the cloth that baby Jesus was wrapped in.
A very aromatic and flavorful roasted pork shoulder served with potatoes and flavored with orange. Roast pork is what's traditionally served on the Greek Christmas table. This delicious pork is brined overnight and then slowly baked covered, until it gets perfectly tender!
A truly unique dish made with a part of beef that's more budget-friendly. Loaded with garlic and served with the most amazing lemon gravy. Again a classic Greek holiday meal.
Another very traditional Greek sweet is served on Christmas day. Diples means folded. And it's a pastry that gets folded while it gets deep-fried. Diples are then either soaked or drizzled with a warm honey syrup. Utterly crispy and delicious!
