My Irish aunt and my mother had a kind of strange competition in these things. That Christmas pudding thing started mouths before with rum and storing in the cellar. Heavy, with that icing. But in general I agree with suckadmin, it is not the best food of the world, although it has improved. The best food is in my opinion the Italian, but I was never outside Europe, so I can't judge.

The secret of Greek food is olive oil, and most restaurants in Europe and in the tourist areas don't use the right oil. To cook greek food you need local, cold pressed oil from of best quality. And I don't know about America, but most Greek food in the Greek restaurants is not Greek, it's balkan. Much meat, french fries, Greek salad, that's Balkan grill, and not Greek food.
I wrote a article about the Greek cuisine on Wikipedia-NL, but according to the standard of Wikipedia it's 100% original research. (Robot)
I think it gives a good impression about the Greek cuisine. But I noticed after a time we started to cook European in Greece., because the dishes are often high fat. And because we are Dutch, and Holland has a very international kitchen.
