What are some popular Mediterranean dishes?

Mediterranean dishes are one of the most popular dishes in the world. The Mediterranean dishes typically consist of lots of vegetables, whole grains, beans, fruit, herbs and spices. It excludes any red meat or pork products including ham and bacon.

Mediterranean dishes are popular in France, Spain, Italy and Greece. The traditional foods in these places are fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and fish. People eat mostly foods that they can find locally including breads baked with organic flour instead of white flour. They even make olive oil out of homegrown olives.

Salads & Soup

Salads are very popular as well as herbs such as dill and parsley which add flavor to fish dishes or soups. French cuisine has a reputation for including a lot of butter and cream but that is changing as people turn away from saturated fats. In recent decades it has become more common to use olive oil or canola oil in place of butter. Our lentil soup isa local favourite, but our chefs love to keep things fresh with a soup of the day.
