There are some gifts from the Greek you can trust - and that's the secret of their delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Taking the azure blue sea as its colour theme, this well-planned feature offers meals in minutes that will bring back memories of island vacations - or offer a holiday at home if you can't actually get away. Fresh seafood tastes stunning topped with skordalia - a garlicky purée - while salty, seaweed-sprinkled calamari is as fresh and crisp as a dip in the bay. The name 'saganaki' might be unfamiliar but you'll certainly recognise the delights of pan-fried cheeses. Finally, an Italian edge: this butter bean and cherry tomato snack is particularly good washed down with a dry red wine.
