A note about serious food allergies

Oh give me the classic Greek food and flavor: the salty feta, the cool-as-a-cucumber tzatziki (literally!), the not-rice not-pasta orzo, the liberal use of lemon. There's nothing like 'em, and they're all showcased here. It's like Homer and Socrates had a meal kit company. (Not so; there was only dial-up back in Ancient Greece.)
