This is a good one! People often do not think of lobster as a staple for Greek style seafood, but I have had lobster in Greece several times and it is amazing!

Here are a few Greek style lobster recipes as well:

Lobsters are present in the sea by Greece, but they look different and taste a little different than the Maine lobsters that are common in the United States. It is easier to show:


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.

Cooking Vegetables Greek Style

I have noticed in Greek restaurants that the vegetables I am served are always soft. I like them this way, they are way easier to digest than the half-raw vegetables served in typical restaurant situations.

They are not only soft, but the perfect amount of softness - they aren't falling apart and still taste great. So, I tried to cook my vegetables a little longer at home and it was a disaster. They got too soft and everything fell apart. Any tips?

Cooking with Greek Spirits

When I cook outside of Greek cuisine, I use spirits sometimes, such as when making sauces. Like, I sometimes deglaze the pan when I make steak with bourbon and make a nice, butter sauce.

In Greek cuisine, I only use spirits when making desserts. However, I do use wine sometimes in my savory dishes. Do people use spirits in their savory cooking in Greece? If so, how?

Greek Tomato Soup Question

I usually make my own Greek-style tomato soup from fresh tomatoes. I don't usually take the skin off or take the seeds out, and the soup is fine. But now I am wondering, is it possible to take the seeds out easily? The issue is, I feel like the seed pulp has a lot of flavor so I don't want to scrape the seeds out before cooking down the tomatoes. I know I can blanch the tomato and peel off the skin easily enough.

Do you think maybe running the tomato though a food mill will help, and then can proceed with the recipe as usual?

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.
