Dear contestants, thank you once more for participating the event. I have summed everything up and created a little overview over the recipes you have handed in. I think we have a great collection of dishes there.

The first to participate was Ivy. She is from Cyprus and cooked us a lovely dish with called Louvu me Lahana
Lyan is participating with a sellection of dishes. The first one is a refreshing Tzatziki
This is Lyan's second dish. It is Calamar with lemon and garlic butter . A great way of preparing calamar!
This is not the classic cinnamon role you would expect. These are Cinnamon and cardamon rolls
This is my personal favourite of Lyan's dishes as I am a chickepea fan. Her chickpea salad has onion, parsley, coriander and feta cheese.
Ivy presensts the perfect desert. Her pudding like cream is flavoured with rose water and orange blossom water. It is called Milk Mahalebi with strawberries.
This Moussakas is another great dish by Lyan!
More that burnt toast hsa grilled some Halloumi cheese for us. The dish is a Char grilled halloumi cheese with tomato and olive dressing.
A pita sandwich with Tzatziki is presented by the Torview blog
Akheela from the Torview Blog (Toronto) is presenting a second dish. This time it is Stuffed Tomatos and bell peppers with potatoes.
This grilled pork sandwich with halloumi cheese is brought to us by Peter from the Kalofagas Blog who is participating the first time.
As so often Lyan has handed in the most recipes. These are her last two entries. Roasted pepper dip.
Do not forget to use the 'translate' option on her website as the recipes are in dutch! Her are her marvelous Sesame crackers with Thyme.

  1. A very nice array of traditional dishes Tobias. Good luck and congratulations to the winner:D

  2. I have voted! A great roundup!



  3. Hi
    I have voted a good roundup and collection of recipes.
    Regards to all

  4. [...] That’s not all.  How about some dessert to go with it.  My recipe Mahalebi with Strawberries would be a great choice and it is in a contest for recipes from Cyprus.  Hope you will take a minute and vote for my recipe here. [...]

  5. All recipes look great but as a Cypriot I must say that most of them are not Cypriot recipes.

  6. I’ve voted! And I agree with Ivy, most of recipes are not Cypriots. They look great, though! :)

  7. Tobias, oops! “The recipes are not Cypriots”!!!! This is what happens when you write in a hurry!

  8. Dear all!

    When I was in Cyprus lately I ate at 7st Georges Tavern marvelous Mezze. I spoke with George, the owner, about food and asked him about the traditional dishes of the island as he had just served me a roast beef with chutney. He said: “If this was not a Cypriot dish until now, now it is. Things develop as time goes by.” I want to see it in this spirit and hope that we can soon find Peter’s grilled pork and Halloumi sandwich as well as Lyan’s roasted red pepper dip on the menus of Cypriot taverns and in Cypriot houses.


  9. Hi Tobias,
    I voted already but, I think all the contestants must be congratulated for their lovely recipes and for this magnificent tour around the Cypriot food!!
    Hope you have a lovely Sunday,

  10. Dear all!

    sometimes it is true that we buy books which are all delicious recipes, we look on the internet, sharing with friends this is how I get my recipes.

    Because these recipes with some time to waanen we are in the country, we cherish the memories of good times, spending time with friends.

    We, I am sure if someone told me that this is a Greek, iltaliaans a recipe from any country … I do not doubt.

    The pizzeria muse, the muse Greek, kebab tent suddenly seem not to be original ?????

    Sure I think but the good taste and beautiful reminder again.


    I’ve enjoyed my posted recipes and it was delicious

  11. What a great round up! YUM!
