These tirokroketes are great to make, especially for parties!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated kasseri cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Olive oil, for frying
To make the tirokroketes, you will need to combine the feta, kasseri, cumin, and pepper to the bowl of the food processor and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until cold, which should take about 2 hours. Roll into a ball and place on a plate in a single layer. Pour oil into a fry pan until it covers about 1/2 inch. Set the heat to medium and let the oil heat. Add the flour to a small dish, pour the milk into a small bowl, and spread the breadcrumbs into a small plate. Roll one ball of cheese into the flour, dunk it into the milk, and then roll it in the bread crumbs. And then all you need to do is fry!!

Soft and tender Greek lamb shank

I love making this tender lamb shank anytime I have a special occasion. While you can cook lamb shake in many different ways, I like to go sit in the oven just until the outside gets a nice darker color and some of the fat renders off. Of course, you should always serve this with either rice or potatos.

How to make thick and creamy Santorini fava!

Santorini fava is a classic staple in Santorini cuisine, and it has spread all over Greece. The dish is very simple to make, and taste even better when you use high-quality ingredients like Greek olive oil. It is a very budget friendly meal, and can stay in the fridge for a few days without going bad. It can get a bit dry so I suggest squeezing some lemon and adding a bit more olive oil if you're going to eat it over the course of a few days. Here is how you make it:

How to choose a fresh fish at the fish market!

Choosing a fresh fish is going to be key for your dish and for your health. I don't usually go to the fish market when I'm home, but when I'm on vacation, and especially in Greece, I love going to the market to get fresh fish from local fishermen. If you don't know how to pick fresh fish, here is a great tutorial on how!

What is the best Greek food to sneak in vegetables for kids?

My kids absolutely hate eating vegetables and I am always looking for ways to sneak in more and more vegetables. Does anyone have good Greek dish recommendations that have vegetables that don't taste too strong? Or existing recipes where I can add small pieces of veggies? I would really appreciate it, I am not the best chef but I am trying to switch it up these days and keep things healthy!

How long can you store phyllo in the freezer for?

I've been stocking up on phyllo from the Greek supermarket for quite some time… about six months in the freezer. How long will it stay fresh for? And when will I need to use it by? If anyone has advice I would really appreciate it.
