Perhaps no other combination of meat and vegetables best represents the cooking of northern Greece more than the duet of leeks and pork, which appears in pies, sausages, ground meat dishes, and main courses alike. Tigania (Greek pan-fried pork) is a classic example of this beloved combination.

When it comes to desserts, pastries and cakes are a tried-and-true favorite in Greece. Coming from the shores of Crete, Portokalopita (orange cake) takes advantage of the orange trees that dot the island.
