Recipe by Izzy Knight

A very traditionaldish from Ikaria, Greek. My family gave high praises to this dish, but there's hardly any fancy cooking techniques involved. All the ingredients used are in season during July/August/Sept. So this dish is best cooked during this period. What a lovely, simple recipe this is! (Recipe from Kochilas's "The Glorious Foods of Greece).
