My personal favorite is the orange one. I have a friend who makes a grape one and that is delicious, too. She mixes in walnuts with the grapes to give the whole thing a texture change! Spoon sweets are delicious and easy to make.
I can do the conversions myself but I am wondering if you can share for the American style of cooking? So cups instead of grams for example.
Maybe this will help others who are in different markets? If I end up doing the conversions I will come back and share in this thread.
We always have turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, stuffing.
For Greek stuff, sometimes we make the rice and chestnut "stuffing" dish.
Then for dessert, we have apple pie, pumpkin pie, and sometimes Greek stuff like Ek Mek Kataifi and baklava.
I agree, it seems like a great thing being in Greece for the holidays! I bet it doesn't matter where you are, you'll still find something to do.
Mykonos, though, seem like a great place. I love the shopping there - I bet you'll find some great gifts!
Up until about two or so years ago, I didn't realize they were symbolic for Christmas but I never knew why. Thanks for sharing this! Pomegranates must be in season now because they were easy to find in the stores.
WOW!!! I never thought to put chocolate on it - wow those other options sound so delicious. I only had loukoumades once in Greece and they had honey on them, but come to think of it, I have seen different version of them in other places. Do they do chocolate sauce? I can picture putting thinly...
I love Rick Steve's work. It's so fun and helpful. I loved that video you shared - I have never been to hydra and I want to! It's an easy day trip from Athens from what I understand but I might be tempted to stay there because it looks so cool.
So my favorites from the list are lego of lamb and lamb shank. I actually grill my leg of lamb! I rotate it on the grill until it's cooked. I brush it with ladolemono throughout the cooking process. I love lamb shank and order it when I go out, but I don't tend to cook that. I love to save some...
Do you know I have never been to Corfu, at least that I can remember. If I went, I might have been young. I am most intrigued by the cuisine differences from place to place in Greece. Very fascinating. What is Sofrito? I Have heard of it but have never eaten it.
So, I make bread all the time. One thing that I do with "Greek bread" that I don't do with other breads is I add some olive oil to the dough. It gives it a texture closer to the bread I was finding in Greece. Sometimes I add some chopped olives, or maybe even experiment with making it with...
I am going to have to remember this for the next time I am in Santorini. I hadn't planned out where to watch sunset when I was there and it was a bit frustrating, wandering around, trying to find a spot.
