19th Mediterranean Cooking Event – Greece

Apr 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Blogevents, Recipes

As all travels come to an end also this travel comes to an end. Our last station is Greece, the birthplace of this blog. The Greek Cuisine is in my opinion highly underestimated. This is due to mostly lousy cooking abilities in crowded touristy areas of the country. Original Greek Cuisine is mainly cooked at [...]

There are many recipes for the classic Greek chickpea soup the Revithada. One can find this soup throughout Greece, it is very famous on the island of Sifnos though.

Sep 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Starters

Trachanas is a type of fermented cracked wheat with yogurt. It can be found in Turkish, Albanian, Persian, Greek and Bulgarian language, so I assume it is quite spread in the these regions. Often it is turned into a soup but one can also make a pie from it as you can see above. Bookmark [...]

Red porgy or Φαγρί can be found quite often here in Greece. Most of the fish is farmed but fishermen also sell it off the boat on the islands. This one was a bait too big for the oven, so it had to be cut. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook Buzz [...]

Vleeta with bacon and Graviera cheese

Aug 12th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings

In Greece Vleeta falls under the category of Chorta which means “weeds”. Botanically it is Amaranth. It is served a lot in Greek cuisine. It is especially healthy as it contains a lot of bitter components. Not everybody likes the bitter taste the plant has once it is boiled. This taste can be helped with [...]



Simple fish soup – Ψαρόσουπα
