Nova Scotia Food Critic Says 2021 Year of Greek Wine, Food

Mark DeWolf, Creative Director of Food and Drink for Nova Scotia's SaltWire Network has a love affair going with Greek wine – he said it will be the “darling of sommeliers” in 2021 as COVID-19 lingers, and lauded Greek food so high to the skies the gods feel it.
He said all that in a newsletter and that he'd “love to see our chefs and foodies take a deeper dive into Greek cuisine.”
Despite the Greek culture found in many communities across Atlantic Canada, he said many people limit their tastes to souvlaki and moussaka. “The Greek table is amazingly rich and reflective of the diversity of the Greek landscape,” he wrote.
Such as lamb that he says is a favorite party food and wants to try the giant beans with celery and smoked pork belly of a favorite chief, the Cretan Marianna Leivaditaki of London's Morito Hackney Road restaurant.
He loves kalamari but not the deep fried version found at most restaurants.
"Be inspired and try stuffed squid, such as … Kalamaria Yemista (stuffed squid). It will expand your perception of what calamari can be,” he said.


As the warmer temperatures begin settling in, refreshing salads and sandwiches with plenty of vegetables added are a great choice for a healthy lunch.
