Alonissos for me is the the perfect Greek island. There is no airport which keeps the island quieter than many and means you arrive by boat, greeted by beautiful landscape bursting out of the Aegean Sea. And one of my first meals when I went there was Spanakopita, a delicious spinach and feta savoury pie.
I’m back with another Greek recipe. And yes it’s yogurt once more.
Fresh cucumber and dip, make for a very cool summer dip.
We have our version of this in India, it’s called a “Raita”, will share this too sometime.
When I discovered chive blossoms in my local weekly CSA, I wanted to try something different... so a beautiful, simple to make, wonderfully pink vinegar came to be! This would make a unique gift for that foodie or hostess you know!
Honestly, I’ve never been to Greece.
Greece to me has been its art, culture, philosophy, Homer’s Odyssey, etc. it’s cuisine never even crossed my mind till now.
Browsing the web for Greek food, I found many delicious recipes I would love to try.
Of these the Yiaourti me Meli sounded simple, healthy and it has my favourite ingredient - curd!!!
Melitzanosalata is an eggplant dip similar to baba ghanouj, but without the tahini. It's a very customizable dish! If you want something heartier, add some feta. If you want your eggplants to taste smokier, grill them or add a dash of paprika. It's great with olives, too!
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.
