Coffee & Desserts
In Ancient Greece, herbs were used both in food and for medicine. In fact, the whole system of medicine that the Ancient Greek physicians practiced is based around the variety of herbs and spices that are found growing in the Greek countryside. The Ancient Greek physician, Hippo- crates, is credited with saying, “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.” Herbs and spices did make it into the cuisine both as a cure and to enhance the flavor of the food.
