  1. Heidi-

    PLEASE give me a good recipe for mpougatza. I hate the little individual pocket ones, do you have one to make in a pan? I would die if you did. It’s my absolute favorite dessert in Greece and I would love to make it.

    • …as it happens… I do have a wonderful recipe for real Serreiki mpougatsa from the city of Serres – where the best mpougatsa in Greece is from. I recently (just earlier this month) spent several days in Serres, sampling more bougatsa than I probably should have, so I know what it’s really supposed to taste like now. I will definitely add it to the list – for when our pipes unfreeze and we have running water and I can think about cooking again! 😛

    I am wondering if you could help me with something?
    It is my husband’s name day on Sunday… And it will be the first time we are in the house for this day…And I was wondering if you had some simple recipes for some small dishes that I could serve with the drink when the family comes over to our house??
    Like keftedakia and so on :):) I would love your help, if you have some ideas? ( But i am not the best chef, so it has to be a bitt simple, but tast:):) I hope you can help:):)

    Sincerly Dina

    • Hi Dina,
      I’ll start with the recipes that are already up: the melitzanosalata would be great. The pita bread too if you have time. Today at 4pm Greek time a post on some really delicious kebabs will go up – use the exact recipe, but form them into meatballs instead of kebabs. Instead of making the sauce with it, make tzatziki instead (a cucumber, grated; 1 cup Greek yogurt; a little salt; 1 tbsp dried dill or 1/4 cup fresh dill; 2 garlic cloves pressed; 1 tbsp olive oil, mix together, done).

      If you do fried food, you can take 300g chickpeas (dry, start soaking them 24 hours prior), grind up in the food processor (without pre-cooking, but grind them up pretty well), mix with parsley, diced onion, cumin, and paprika, a few tbsp of breadcrumbs, an egg; then form into balls, dust with flour, and fry for a few minutes on each side in oil. These are called revithokeftedes (chickpea balls), similar to falafel. Very popular on the islands.

      Get some banana peppers (Italian peppers) and stuff with a Greek cheese of your preference and bake till the peppers are soft and their skin is crinkly and the cheese is melted: bake the peppers first and then stuff them with cheese and put them back in for a few minutes to prevent the cheese burning because the peppers take longer to cook).

      Dolmadakia: Get some grape leaves; mix some rice with parsley, a little salt, dill, and diced onion, and put 1 tbsp on each leaf and roll into a little ‘cigar’. Put them in a pot in concentric circles, stacking up several levels high, but leaving the center about 3″ across completely empty, pour about 2″ water into the center hole and cover the whole thing with some grape leaves, including the hole, cover the pot and cook over medium heat for about 25 minutes till the rice softens. I do these in my clay pot but that takes way longer. You can include ground meat in there if you want to.

      You could also make hummus which isn’t Greek but is always popular (soak 300g chickpeas overnight. Cook in water. Drain. Combine in food processor with juice of 1 lemon, 3 tbsp tahini, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp ground cumin, 3 tbsp olive oil. Add more olive oil if needed to achieve desired consistency.) It takes me 10 minutes because I cook my chickpeas in the pressure cooker.

      A quick and simple Greek spring salad (marouli): chop some romaine lettuce (add in some baby lettuce if you have it), a few green onions (white and green parts), a few tbsp of fresh dill, a pinch of salt, and dress with juice of 1 lemon and 1 tbsp olive oil.

      Cut a few slabs of feta cheese about 1/2″ thick. Coat in beaten egg and a lot of sesame seeds and fry lightly in a pan with a bit of olive oil. Drizzle lightly with honey and serve.

      Let me know if you want further clarification or more ideas! And happy nameday to your husband!!

  3. Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to
    find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thank you!

  4. Hi, my name is Frank Spiteri, my wife & I visited Santorini in January 2014, we had an incredible meal at a great restaurant, I come from Italian back ground with a heavy middle eastern influence due to my parents having spent the majority of their early years in Egypt, I have made many dishes including stuffed cabbage leaves, however, I have never tasted anything like the stuffed cabbage leaves I enjoyed, in Santorini, I would love to know how to make these, if you know, I would be greatly appreciative, thanks from Sydney, Australia.
