I would love to visit Corfu one day and learn about what regional dishes they offer. I know that I want to travel all over Greece, and try the classics like Gyro, moussaka and all of that good stuff. But I know that there's so much more to learn about and try, especially in Corfu, I’ve even heard of a regional type of pastitsio that they have. Does it look and taste like this one?

Never tried that, but the food in Greece is truly amazing!

The veggies and fruit have such a great taste, it must be due to the weather/climate and soil found in different regions of Greece!

There are various Corfiot dishes to enjoy, like bourdeto (my favorite), sofrito and pastitsada. The first is made with fish, the second and the third with beef. Never heard of a different pastichio version in Corfu. They make it in the same way people make it all over Greece. It's actually an Italian dish and 'pastichio' means 'mess' in Italian!

The pastitsio that you speak of is called pastitsio dolce. It’s a super rare find, and I only heard of it because I have a friend from Corfu. It doesn’t taste too much like the tradtitional Greek pastitsio, it can have different types of meats like veal, chicken or pork. It really depends on who’s making it.

The Italian influence is super strong in Corfu, and it’s pretty rare which is why many people haven’t heard of dishes like Pastitsio Dolce. Pastisada is another Italian style dish. It’ a casserole dish that consists of pasta and veal, beef or poultry, that is cooked with chili peppers, garlic, onions, wine, olive oil, vinegar, cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon, fresh or canned tomatoes, black ground pepper, and grated kefalotyri or Parmesan cheese. There are different variations but this is how I’ve had it.

What is the culture of Corfu like?

Hey guys, I'm thinking of traveling to Corfu for my next vacation, but I don't know too much about the island. Before traveling I really like to learn about the places that I'm visiting so I have some cultural context. What is a culture like? How does Corfu differ from the other Greek Islands? Can anyone give me some insight?

Have you rescued the donkeys in Corfu?

I know that there's a lot of news about the donkey attractions in Greece and the mistreatment of donkeys. My friend is really into saving animals and all that, so on our trip I wanted to visit this donkey sanctuary. Have any of you been? I didn't even know this was a thing.

What do I need to know before visiting the Theotokos Monastery in Corfu?

I've never been to a monastery before...what do I need to know? Is it similar to visiting a church or a mosque?
