This recipe started when I attempted to make mozarella cheese and failed! It’s not the first time that amazing recipes are created after an unsuccessful attempt to make something else.  Technically this is not the traditional panna cotta made with full fat cream but a much lighter version made with two kinds of milk and […]

I have already posted the recipe for making Apricot Jam but this one deserves a separate post just to show you how quickly you can turn some ripe fruit into jam in no time.  It took 15 minutes from start to finish. I bought these fruit six days ago and after eating as many as […]

People tend to avoid eating dried legumes during summer but combining them with pasta we have a  delicious, vegan, summer dish not only full of flavor and taste but also rich in protein, fiber, carbohydrates and vitamins. The only fat in the dish is the olive oil, which makes it a very healthy dish.  Leftovers […]

The usual Loukanikopitakia we make in Greece are those called Pigs in a Blanket made with frankfurter sausages, wrapped in puff pastry. The other day I made Galaktoboureko and had some leftover phyllo sheets*.  Instead of making the usual Tyropitakia I saw some Kalamata sausages** in the fridge, I had leftover parmesan from my last recipe […]

When it comes to a busy day I always resort to making a pasta dish which can be made in minimum time and still have a delicious meal.

I based this dessert on an older recipe of mine which I make with Greek yoghourt, whipping cream, sugar and canned tutti frutti.  These four ingredients make an easy and delicious dessert called Yiaourtoglyko (yoghourt dessert) which you can have ready in five minutes. I love making fruit preserves, which I love using  in my recipes. […]

Did you know that in the Middle Ages the British used to call the cauliflower «Cyprus Colewort»?   It is believed that the cauliflower originated in Cyprus, where the oldest record dates from the 6th century b.C.    Cauliflower,  arrived in Europe from Cyprus by the Venetians. It was then introduced to mainland Europe through Italy in […]

Karydopita (walnut cake) is one of the most delicious, traditional Greek cakes.  I have already posted two «Karydopita» recipes (see links below) but this new twist of mine is my all times favourite.  This time I made it with semolina flour, olive oil, orange syrup and added a chocolate ganache made with orange fruit preserve […]

This is a very easy pasta dish you can pull together in less than half an hour.  I always keep some sausages in the deep freezer and had some leftover leeks from the last time we went to the farmers” market.  Of course, it’s impossible that a Greek household is without feta, so with a […]

Christos Anesti (Christ has risen) to all my Christian readers. Hope you had a joyful Easter! This recipe is one of those I cooked at the restaurant, at the beginning on Lent, when I was in Cyprus, for the staff. I love dried legumes, especially lentils and if I were to chose between a meat dish or […]
