These turnovers are soooo good but a little hard to come by. They are made with squash and cinnamon and sugar. Some variations also have raisins and cloves. It really depends on your taste.



I haven't but I've had similar dishes elsewhere in Greece. The versions I've had were delicious. If I see the Cypriot version I will be sure to check it out.

Making Koromos – An Easy Recipe

Named because it looks like a log of salami, this is actually an easy and decadent dessert. It’s also called Kormos, I think. These are the ingredients I use:
  • 3 cups crumbled chocolate graham crackers
  • 2 T Cognac
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
In a bowl, add the crackers and sprinkle with cognac. Mix the rest of the ingredients to another bowl until combined. Fold in the crackers with a rubber spatula. Spread the mixture over wax paper and shape into a log. Put in freezer for 3 hours. Slice and serve.

Pasta Used in Greece and Substitutes?

When I look at Greek recipes, I notice that there are different pasta shapes, and I can't always find some of them here where I live. For example, hiliopites (the square shaped ones) are difficult to find unless my Greek store has them.

What kinds of pastas are the most common, and what are some good substitutes?

Most Popular Spoon Sweets?

I am interested in making my own spoon sweets. What are the most popular? I have eaten cherry, grape, lemon peel, and orange peel spoon sweets. Are they easy or hard to make? Are they similar to jams or other preserves? I find these tastier than American-style jams, with more of the fruit flavors coming out. Any advice is appreciated.

How to Serve Taramasalata?

I have some taramasalata I want to serve for an appetizer at a dinner party I am having soon. How is it typically served? I have some crackers, but I am wondering if it will taste great on toast like regular caviar does.

I made the batch myself, and it has a lemony flavor - maybe a bit to much lemon because this was my first time making it, but it's good!

Other Dips to Serve at Greek Dinner Party?

I mentioned in a previous thread that I made taramasalata for a dinner party. I want to serve other dips or spreads. I am thinking three is a good number. I don't want to serve hummus - I want to do something different.

I was thinking tzatziki and one other. What do you suggest? I was thinking the one with eggplant or the Fava spread that I see sometimes in menus.
