Greka Foods

Today’s blog is all about Greka Foods – an authentic, artisan producer of real, hearty Greek produce which is based on the owner’s family recipes, honoring the healthy Greek Mediterranean diet.

Greka was born out of our love for Greece: its land and its produce.

Founded in 2016 by the lovely couple Ian and Sofia, the team at Greka are experts in creating THE BEST authentic, all-natural Greek products that speak to everyone’s heart by utilising the best produce Greece has to offer.

Greka’s products are based on recipes passed through generations of Sofia’s family – from Sofia’s grandmother, to her mother, Georgia. Their recipe philosophy is simple – to allow superb ingredients to speak for themselves.

The desire to share their family’s authentically produced delicacies with us is pretty much their unique story; a story about exceptional produce, fresh ingredients and delicious flavours.

I was delighted to have received a gifted selection of Greka products from the lovely owner, Sofia, who suggested to review their award winning products, such as the handmade Tomato Sauces & Greek Honey.

Here’s a couple of Sofia’s personally recommended ingredient focussed dishes for both a Prawns and Meatball related dish;

1) Cumin Meatballs;

  • 4 Slices of White Bread
  • 100ml Water
  • 100ml Red Wine
  • 250g Minced Beef and 250g Minced Pork
  • 1 ½ tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Greek Oregano
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 100g of Plain Flour (for seasoning the Meatballs)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 Jar of Greka Tomato Sauce with Med Herbs.

2) Prawns Saganaki:

– 250g Raw King Prawns (cleaned and ready to use)
– 50g Feta Cheese (optional)
– 1 Jar of Greka Tomato Sauce with Feta
