In addition to the fine arts, the ancient Greeks quickly recognized the importance of proper nutrition. Byzantine cooks and bakers imaginatively developed the recipes of their ancestors and thus reached a high gastronomic level. Many of these cooks emigrated to Italy and France after the fall of Constantinople and spread these recipes there.

The Greek nutritional philosophy is: Grains (bread), vegetables (as a salad or main course), olives, olive oil, dairy products (e.g. cheese and yoghurt), fruit, legumes (e.g. nuts), meat or fish every day.
