Making tiropita at home is fun and a lot easier than it may seem - especially when doing it in a 9 x 13 pan. Although I have used different combinations of cheeses, the version I like the best includes imported feta and then a soft cheese like anthotyro if I can find it, cottage cheese if I can't. I live in the United States and there is a Greek store near me that has that cheese, but I find that cottage cheese is just as good. This recipe is light and flaky and makes a great appetizer, snack, light meal (when served with soup or salad) and I've even had it for breakfast!

Lemon Potatoes Recipe from Cooking Greek Cookbook

Lemon potatoes is one of my all time favorite Greek dishes. I love the way the lemon tastes with potatoes, and it tends to pair well with just about every main course I could serve, but most especially poultry or seafood. Basically, if I've seasoned the meat I am serving with lemon, I tend to prefer these potatoes over other ways to prepare potatoes. The lemon also lightens up the dish, and the whole meal pairs well with salad or other vegetable side dishes. It's also easy to put together. I try to use fresh lemons because that elevates the dish to another level.

Horiatiki Sałata Recipe from Cooking Greek Cookbook

Horiatiki Sałata, or Greek village salad, is one of my favorite Greek dishes to cook at home, especially when the tomatoes are vine ripened or even better, pick straight from my garden. This salad is a great side dish as part of a larger meal, or it can actually stand on its own. I love to eat this with a few pieces of bread. I like to make it about an hour before I want to eat it and I leave it (covered) on the countertop for about thirty minutes before I eat it so all the flavors can meld together. I make the classic recipe and use fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, oregano, my favorite imported feta cheese, Kalamata olives, and of course, only the best Greek olive oil.

Thinking about street food in Athens ...

I am planning a girls trip to Athens and there is a woman we are traveling with who absolutely LOVES exploring street food. So, I told her I would ask you guys for recommendations. I know to watch out for gyros, souvlaki, pita, street corn, chestnuts (I know the corn and chestnuts are seasonal and I don't quite know when we are visiting yet. It's a big group and a lot of moving parts lol).

I am looking for not only what to look out for in terms of food, but also if you have recommendations as to a location where they have the best. Thank you in advance!
