If you share my passion for a Mediterranean diet (think -… olive oil, grains, veggies, feta, lemons, etc.) as well for European dishes (think – … pierogi, crepes, pasta, kielbasa, pork, latkas, etc.), hopefully this blog will give you some great inspiration. Welcome to Eating European– a place where you can find both classic and creative recipes inspired by European and Mediterranean cuisines.

What you can find on Eating European?


Sometimes you’ll find here a classic/traditional recipes dish here (like this Authentic Polish Pierogi), and other times you may find my twist on traditional recipes (like this Butternut Squash Feta Pierogi), or perhaps a dish that is inspired by specific cuisine (like this Turkish Inspired Eggplant with Tomatoes).

It’s our hope that these recipes will either remind you of your travels to Mediterranean region and/or European countries, or maybe of an old family tradition or grandma’s cooking or perhaps just simply introduce you to new and exotic dishes from the old continent.

Whatever it is, we encourage you to grab a glass of wine or a cup of tea, and relax and browse through some of our recipes.  For those new to this site, here are some links to recipes typesyou may be interested in:
