Kotopoulo Lemonato (Lemony Chicken)

Many of my Greek friends who follow the blog are asking me why wasn’t I posting Greek recipes. The truth is that I have been eating Greek food my entire life. I just want to explore other countries, other flavors, other types of food. Don’t get me wrong, I do like Greek food and I...

Batzina

I am going to tell you a short story. My father comes from a mountainous village in the central Greece. His village is called Sklithro and is located around 600 m. above the level of the sea in the mountain of Mavrovouni (Black Mountain). The village is very small and not touristic at all. It...

Tsoureki Revisited

Every Easter I like to do two things; firstly to paint red eggs and secondly to make tsoureki. Tsoureki is like challah. During my lifetime I have tasted many tsourekia, some of them were good, some awful and some of them exquisite. It is true that homemade tsoureki is not the same as the store-bought....

Beet root Salad with Yogurt Sauce

A quick and very easy recipe to compensate for the crème caramel which although seems quite difficult, in reality is not as much. Anyway, this is a salad I make very often because it is refreshing, healthy, nutritious and tasty. Also, if you boil the beet roots and put them in the refrigerator, you can...

Chocolate Walnut Pie

In Greece walnut pie is a traditional sweet. It is more of a cake than a pie, but we call it pie. Anyway, it is very tasteful and we eat it a lot during winter. This one is a twisted version with chocolate. The recipe originally comes from my favorite greek pastry chef Stelios Parliaros...
