GREEK STREET FOOD

loukaniko... a written store that starts with Homers Odyssey


Homer mentiontions the use of it in Odyssey, Epicharmus wrote a comedy titled The Sausage, and Aristophanes' play The Knights is about a sausage vendor who is elected leader. Evidence suggests that sausages were already popular both among the ancient Greeks and Romans.

Loukaniko is considered to be a pork sausage. However, when it is made in Greece, a lot depends on the type of meat that’s available. Recipes do differ slightly depending on the family and the region of Greece where the recipe is created. It is usually flavored with aromatic ingredients such as fennel seeds, orange peels, garlic, and other herbs. Some people use other vegetables, such as leeks, as part of their recipe. The overall result is a sausage that has a distinct tag to it without being hot.
