Three recipes combined together make this delicious fusion deconstructed Australian Pavlova: Greek Ryzogalo, British Posset and Meringues.  The poached fruit is optional but it makes a wonderful addition.  You can surely serve it as it is or with Glyka tou Koutaliou (Greek Fruit Preserves). The meringues can be made ahead and stored in air tight […]

Milokopi (Shi Drum – Umbrina cirrosa), is a delicious Mediterranean fish recipe which I made up having Briam in mind.    This way you have your baked fish with some vegetables on the side.  I used the vegetables I had at home that day but you can also add some carrots and courgettes as well.

  When I made this Quince Jam I wanted to make it to be somewhat like a cross between a fruit preserve and a jam. If you want it to have more jelly, when you cook the fruit do not discard the seeds and some of its peel but fold it into a tulle and put […]
