Great video! I would love to see some kefte on the board (eg. zucchini fritters) - they would go excellently with those yummy dips!

I agree, some mini keftedes would be great to dip in some tzatziki

Are there any Greek desserts without nuts?

My dear friend has a nut allergy, and I noticed that there are so many Greek cookies and desserts with nuts!! Do you have any advice?

How to make Greek artichoke salad!

First, remove the tough outer leaves of the artichokes and cut off part of the stems. Cut off about 1 inch from the tips. Cut artichokes in half lengthwise and scoop out the choke. Drop into boiling salted water seasoned with the juice of one lemon and one tablespoon olive oil. You may also roast the artichokes in the oven as shown in the picture . Cook for 30 minutes or until tender. Serve with a dressing of 1/2 cup olive oil and 4 tablespoons lemon juice, which is about the juice of 1 lemon. This is a super simple recipe and its not like your typical "salad." A salad in Greece can just be marinated vegetables.

Is either of them more traditional? I would like to try making one of them this weekend :)

Is it possible to use ground pork or lamb for Greek ground beef recipes?

Im not a huge fan of ground beef sometimes and I like to switch up the types of protein that I use. Has anyone tried making pastitsio or gemista with pork or lamb for example? How was it?
