I absolutely love fried eggplant! Even though it's a pretty simple recipe, I've seen a lot of people miss a crucial step. In order to make sure that the eggplant is super crispy on the outside but soft on the inside (yet not wet and mushy) you need to let your eggplant sit with salt so that all of them moisture is drawn out. All you have to do is slice the eggplant, sprinkle it with salt, and let it sit on paper towels for about 15 min. Wipe away the water that has been drawn out, and then dip your eggplant in an egg wash mixture, and then in flour that is seasoned with salt pepper and oregano. I lightly fry it in a shallow pan with olive oil until it's crispy on the outside, and then you're ready to go!

This looks delicious! I use the same technique to fry zucchini - I don't always release the moisture for zucchini, though. Eggplant, I think, needs it more than zucchini does.
 

Strawberry covered ekmek kadaïfi

This dessert is one of the best I’ve ever made! It’s a simple ekmek kadaïfi recipe that I found from google and I topped it off with pistachios and strawberries. It tastes just as good as it tastes.

Is it easy to eat gluten free in Greece?

My husband has a gluten allergy and it’s been pretty difficult traveling and eating gluten free. There have been many cases where people tell us that something is gluten free and it’s actually not, and he ends up having an allergic reaction. Is anyone gluten free and has traveled around Greece? How difficult was it and can you share a bit about your experience?
