A collection of all my greek recipes, or recipes that are especially popular in Greece (hence the 'au gratins' and the middle-eastern mix). My aim is not only to include the recipes Greece is known for, but to also reflect modern life here in Greece.
This is my own concoction. I'm really pleased with the results. The anise flavour of the ouzo is very nice with the citrus. Use your citrus of choice - I make it with all 3, depending on what I'm in the mood for and what's at hand.
Rustic, golden-brown bread slices - crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. Drizzled with great olive oil, sea salt and Mediterranean oregano. That's really the recipe right there. You'll love this.
This is an easy appetizer you can literally whip up in 5 minutes - it's best if you prepare at least 6 hours ahead of serving to allow for chilling and having the flavors 'blend' together. Makes all the difference in the world.
From Aglaia Kremezi. If a fragrant peach is not available, dried apricots or other fresh fruits such as pears, strawberries or raspberries can be substituted. Also, instead of fresh rosemary, try dried Mediterranean oregano, thyme or savory -- herbs that are more robust in their dried form as opposed to fresh. Use this vinegar to dress salads, especially delicate ones that include fruit. 3-4 week standing time.
This is an old-world recipe. It is really just drained, salted yoghurt, very easy to make and very easy to preserve. I guarantee that once you have made these and tasted how delicious they are, they will become a staple in your home.
