I have never set foot in Greece. So I picked a place that I would love to visit someday - Makrinitsa ! A small village atop a hill with everything I dream of in a place- cobblestone pathways, ancient architecture, meals made from fresh local produce, spice corridors and pet friendly homestays- All this with a view of the hills!
Flowers, Flowers, Flowers! So many shapes, sizes and colors. Mother Nature knows what she is doing! I love gardening and what better way to not only play in the garden but nourish our souls and stomachs than adding some color and flavor to a delicious and refreshing summer salad. There are so many edible flowers but always be sure to check before eating!
This recipe has been past down from generation to generation. I helped make this with my sister-in-law, Linda, who is Greek. And Linda watched her mother Sophie make it and Sophie watched her mother make it. This is a true labour of love. Not to mention very delicious.
I grew up with my dad on the Jersey Shore and frequently would go to the beach and order a pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwich! I combined this memory with getting bagels every morning at summer camp and came to the perfect culmination of the most wonderful sun-soaked memories. Enjoy!
I love things that are really seasonal. You have to wait until their time has come and then savor them while they last. One of those things are elderflowers. Right now on every walk I inspect the elder trees I pass to see how much longer I have to wait until the blossoms are open. I love their smell and aroma and I love the direct connection to the world around me, that gives so graciously. One of the first things I am going to make is an elderflower cordial. It is super refreshing and a wonderful treat of late spring that all of us love.
Desserts in general were always my favorite part of a meal (still are!), and as a kid it was an awesome night when we had a homemade fruit tart and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert!
This illustration is meant to evoke the experience of synaesthesia, a joining or merging of senses that aren't normally connected, a harmless and slightly odd neurological phenomenon I've experienced since I was a kid (when the number 8 was always purple, the too-loud radio made it hard to see, and squares were boys.)
Sometimes I feel flavors as colors: sweet things are pastel soft, sour flavors are neon bright. Apricot streusel bars give you a little bit of both sweet and sour -- enjoy the rainbow!
