What We Ate at Our Greek Wedding 

It’s only been a couple of weeks, but it feels like an age ago that we got married. I meant to post this last Friday but life and the post wedding blues got in the way. 

When it came to food for our wedding, we needed to keep it fairly simple as we had some fussier eaters in attendance, including my mum who generally sticks to British food (think pub classics). However, Ed was also keen to keep some of the traditional Greek dishes in the menu. 

I tried to compromise by mixing the menu up a little and this is what we ended up with…

Canapés 

Cheese Pie 

Beef Meatballs with a Yoghurt & Mint Sauce 

Sausages rolled with Bacon 

Chicken Nuggets with a Mustard Dressing 


Cold Appetiser 

Selection of Breads served with Olive Oil and Olives and a Tomato Pesto to accompany
Hot Appetisers

Tomato Fritters

Feta Cheese baked with Tomato and Pepper 

Salad 

Garden Salad (Tomatoes, Cucumber, Peppers) with Stuffed Vine Leaves 

Main Course

Chicken Fillet with Tomato sauce baked in the oven 

Or 

Pork Steak with Mustard Sauce & Orange 

Or

Stuffed Tomatoes & Peppers (with Rice & Herbs) 

Side Dishes 
Oven baked Potatoes

Mixed Vegetables in the oven 


Dessert 

Fresh Fruit Salad, followed by our Wedding Cake

Bar the cold appetiser (the olive oil and pesto never materialised so we basically ate dry bread and olives), and the fruit salad (which arrived after everyone was up dancing)…it was all really well received and I particularly liked the main course (I had the chicken). 

The canapés were a lot bigger than they are in England, and although I only had one of each, I was feeling fairly full by the time we sat down to eat our meal!
