This recipe is one of those I cooked at the restaurant, at the beginning on Lent, when I was in Cyprus, for the staff.

My dream is to have one in these wood-burning ovens in the future.  Making bread, flaounes, pizza, kleftiko or any other meal you can fit in a wood-fired oven is an experience you will never forget, as it tastes so much better than baking in any other conventional gas or electric oven. In other countries […]
