Pasta & Flour
Pasta has always been part and parcel of the Greek larder. The ancient Greeks had a kind of primitive pasta in the form of a grilled batter they called laganum. The word may be the etymological root of what the Italians call lasagna. Even the word for macaroni might have Greek origins, from the makaria, as in funerary dish. It may or may not be far-fetched, if one considers that wheat-based foods, usually sweetened, are highly symbolic of rebirth and regeneration and thus have always been associated with the foods served in honor of the dead. Pasta (called "zymarika" in Greek) are favorites combined with all types of meats and seafood. Greek cooking makes use of many different types of pastas, from small soup pasta to large pasta tubes used to make the famous "pastitsio."
