The turkey I cooked this year was around 4.5 kilos and of course there were roasted potatoes, the turkey stuffing, mushroom and prune sauce, yoghurt sauce and tabbouleh, which was way too much for the four of us, so he had lots of leftovers.

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.

Today’s recipe has a weird name and many of you may be wondering what stiftaria or casarecce, spirulina and kritamo may be.  When I added the picture on Facebook, even Greeks did not know what this was about.   Casarecce is a short, slightly tubular pasta, about one inch long, with a wonderful trench for […]

  “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”  (Author Unknown) You have probably heard about the disparaging comments Guido Barilla made on a radio show that his company would never feature or market his product directly to gay couples. […]
