    From the Summer 2006 edition of Kerasma's Greek Gourmet Traveler.

    Recipe #315043

    Recipe #262278

    Original recipe from "Bread-Making" By the Greek philosopher Chrysippus in the second century B.C. Recopied into "The Philosopher's Banquet" by Athenaeus in the second century A.D.

    Recipe #246749

    From Adventures in Greek Cooking: The Olive and The Caper by Susanna Hoffman. I haven't tried this recipe but it looks so good. Greek spoon sweets are served by the tea spoon with a cold glass of water to guests. You can eat the sweet then place your spoon in your water to flavor it a bit.

    Recipe #261900

    Sounds a little crazy, but it's good to try new things. From the Oct. 10, 2008 edition of Athens' Plus Magazine. Pandora is supposedly the tastiest fish from Greek waters. This recipe originally listed "1.5 packets linguine." Well, a greek package of linguine should run about 50g so 1.5 should be about 75 grams. As well, this listed "Half wine glass of olive oil" I'm listing it as a 1/2 c or 112.5 mL based on the conversions given to me by Evelyn/Athens here: Prep time depends on how long one takes to gut the fish.

    Recipe #331257

    Serve over cakes or scones. From Adventures in Greek Cooking: The Olive and The Caper by Susanna Hoffman.

    Recipe #262270

    Recipe #314037

    I'd actually like to try this because I love olive oil (the greener the better!) and I like Ice Cream (like everybody). This is from Kerasma's Fall 2006 issue of Gourmet Greek Traveler. This recipe was created by David Tsirekas, Owner-Chef, Perama, Sydney. Cook time includes chill time.

    Recipe #315182

    Pita bread, Recipe #339204 , Recipe #232941... nothing can be better. I eat this for breakfast when I can. I love it with my mom's Recipe #339166!

    Recipe #331572

    From "The Grecian Plate" For use with Recipe #308269

    Recipe #308328

    This is my mom's recipe :-D Ground lamb is my choice but it's ok to substitute ground beef. I don't like potatoes in my moussaka so I leave them out all together, and it cuts down on overall time I have to spend in the kitchen. You can add them to your dish if you'd like, THEY ARE OPTIONAL, so I included them here. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Check out the Moussaka potato debate here in the Greek Forum:

    Recipe #218585

    From "The World Of Greece: Odyssey" Magazine - May/June 2008 issue. This recipe is for the traditional Greek "Glyko Koutaliou" or "Spoon Sweet." "Syrup-laden baklavas, karydopitta, or even the thicker, cakey ravani-style desserts are served on holidays and special occasions, but the everyday sweet is customarily a spoonful of a glyko koutaliou. To this day, spoon sweets are a traditional offering, literally a sweet welcome for visitors into the Greek home, whether they’ve come for a chat or on a more formal occasion. Spoon sweets are also served at the village kafeneion, a teaspoon-sized serving on a small dish set before the guest or visitor with a glass of iced water and a cup of strong Greek coffee. Traditionally each household put up their own spoon sweets according to the availability of fruit in season. Sweets were made in small quantities, usually to recipes handed down from one generation to the next." Spoon sweet can be eaten by itself or spooned over yogurt or ice cream. Yield is a guess.

    Recipe #314790

    From GourMed magazine (what I assume is the Summer or July 2008 issue.)

    Recipe #314796

    The original name of this recipe was, "Set passion fruit tzatziki with olive oil ice-cream and chocolate baklava cigar." It was found at Australian Gourmet Traveller online. This recipe was created by George Calombaris, The Press Club. This is a 3 part recipe, the passion fruit "tzatziki", the olive oil ice-cream and the chocolate baklava "cigar." Here is the accompanying recipe for Recipe #315273. Prep time is a guess, Cook/Freeze time includes chill time but the freeze time depends on your ice cream machine. "Note: The Press Club uses Spanish earthenware dishes available from The Essential Ingredient."

    Recipe #315381

    Adapted from Feasting and Fasting in Crete, Delicious Mediterranean Recipes, by Diana Farr Louis (Kedros, Athens, 2001). Reprinted in the Summer 2006 Greek Gourmet Traveler for Kerasma. A word about "Rusks" known in the Greek as "Paximadia": "Twice-baked breads have been around since Roman times, but in Crete they are both staple and luxury. Made of every conceivable type of flour from refined white to coarse wheat and barley, they accompany every meal, crumbled into salads or springing up in sauces. Smaller sweet rusks flavored with coriander, cloves, and mastic were such a delicacy they were served at weddings until recently. Studded with nuts or currants, seasoned with juices and spices, they are still served with coffee, herbal teas, or raki at any time of day."

    Recipe #314060

    From: New York’s 25: Taste Of Greece – Oct 16-Nov 18, 2006 “Greek cuisine is so attractive because of the relative simplicity of its recipes. We rely on great quality fresh ingredients to achieve great flavors rather than on complex recipes that call for too many spices.” - Chef Christos Phillippou of Kellari. Prep time is an approximation, Cook time is a guess.

    Recipe #313927

    From "The World Of Greece: Odyssey" Magazine May/June 2006 Issue. "Olive oil and lemon dressing, popularly known as ladolemono, is used to dress grilled fish or seafood. Chef Yiannis Baxevanis created this recipe, which is published in his book Ta Kalytera Mou (My Best; Kastaniotis Editions)." The cook/freeze time completely depends on your ice cream maker.

    Recipe #314817

    Try your hand at making Greece's most famous cheese! I'm sure most of us here in suburbia don't have goats - but I know people who do. If I did, I'd for sure make this! I found this on a site for the city of Faliraki in Rhodes, Greece under "Susie's Place." * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Extra Supplies Needed: cheese cloth or fine tulle/netting,fine weaved basket or strainer, clean and sterilized wide mouth jar or container, a dish that will fit inside the jar, a heavy rock that will fit into the jar.
