We have Greece to thank for philosophy, geometry, the foundation of government, and, according to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the root of every single word in the English language. So many valuable contributions lead the film's characters to firmly believe that the only two types of people in this world are Greeks and everybody else (and those in the latter category all wish they were Greek). The movie's sequel is set to release this Friday, and you should probably start preparing now if you want to be ready: Make enough of these 16 Greek-inspired recipes to feed everyone you know—in anticipation of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, and anytime at all.
