15 Greek Foods That Are Super Healthy, According to Science (+5 Greek Food Recipes)


 The Society was established in its current form in 1980 for people with a love and interest in Greece or Cyprus.  Whether this be in Ancient, Byzantine or Modern Greece, in literature, life or the people, the Society exists to support and develop that interest.  It also provides opportunities for Greeks, Cypriots and local residents to meet socially. It runs an annual programme of events from October to June.  The programme starts with a Greek Evening, with food, refreshments and music, for members, guests and those who may wish to join the Society.  Subsequent meetings, in the form of illustrated talks,normally take place on a monthly basis at the University Campus in Old Aberdeen.  The January event also includes the cutting of the Vasilopita (the traditional New Year cake).  There is a regular Greek Easter party, with spit-roasted lamb and other traditional food, drink, music and dancing.  There are other musical events with musicians brought over from Greece around that time.

Jointly with the Aberdeen University Greek and Cypriot Society, a fortnightly Film Club shows Greek films with English sub-titles.  A further joint venture is the range of language classes in Modern Greek, from beginners to advanced, supported by native Greek speakers.

Details of all these events for the current year can be found on this website.

There is a very good Greek restaurant in Aberdeen - Christos Taverna in John Street:  telephone 01224 636320.

New novel on the way by Marjory McGinn.  A Saint For The Summer which will be on pre-order with Amazon shortly. It's a modern tale, set in southern Greece with a thread back to the Second World War. "A compelling story of heroism, faith and love." Andrew R Black. "Forty Days in the Greek Islands" From their very first visit to a Greek island, Andrew and his wife Morag were hooked and kept going back for more. As they got to know the country and the language better, they ventured further off the standard tourist trail, finding an endless variety of new places to visit. Twenty five years later they are still exploring and learning about the islands.
