Revani or Ravani is a Greek semolina cake,  which I have already published in the past. A few weeks ago when I made Bergamot fruit preserve, I decided to make more syrup than needed as I love using it in other recipes. When I started making the Revani I used bergamot zest as well syrup […]

  One of my favourite marmalades is the one with mixed citrus.  You can make the marmalade using any combination of citrus fruit and if you like you can change the ratio of each fruit depending on dominating flavour you would like to taste.  You can follow the same method to make each fruit separately.

You may be wondering what petimezi (epsima in Cyprus) and charoupomelo (teratsomelo in Cyprus) are.   Petimezi or epsima is grape juice, cooked until a thick syrup is produced.  It’s a product produced for millenia and you may already know it as grape syrup or grape molasses.   These two Greek traditional products were used in […]

When I started blogging seven years ago, I never believed that it would last so long.  It is characteristic of those born under the Aries zodiac sign that we get very enthusiastic when we start a new project but we tend to lose interest and give up easily.
