One of the best parts about visiting Greece is being able to get high quality and local ingredients and cooking them yourself! We got these sausages from the local butcher and cooked them up ourselves :) I believe each village and butcher has their own style of seasoning and preparing the meat. These ones were a little bit fiery and super flavorful

Wild oregano and thyme are my favorite seasonings. Nothing like the ones you buy in the bottle

This looks amazing - how do you season your sausage? I have had Greek sausage with all kinds of different seasoning but I love recipes that include orange peel.

My Thai wife can eat chillies like you cannot imagine!!!!....we have them growing here at home, even she complained that Mykonian chillies are a force to reckon with,so she fused them with Thai chillies!!!😂😂... Fennel sounds nice!...
 

These Greek sesame cookies are perfect for the fall

I love sesame biscottis! This is what you'll need: 3/4 cup tahini, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup orange juice, 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon sesame seeds. Mix all of the dry ingredients then the wet ingredients separately. Then combine all of them together and bake at 375 until golden :) I like to coat mine in plenty of sesame seeds but that's optional

How to make avgolemono so you can put it on everything

Avgolemono can be put on literally everything!! I like to put it on gemista and dolmadakia :) This is how you make it

Ingredients: 1-2 cups broth or pan juices from the dish for which you are making avgolemono, 2 eggs, Juice of 1-2 lemons

Gradually beat in a spoonful at a time of hot broth until the mixture is very warm. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pot with the rest of the hot broth and stir continuously until the sauce thickens slightly. Do not allow to boil because it will cook the eggs and the sauce will separate.

And this is what it looks like

How to make Greek lentil rice pilaf

Rice pilaf is such a great dish but you don't really see it in many Greek restaurants. Its one of my favorite foods that I ate growing up :) Here is the recipe
  • 2/3 cup dried lentils, soaked in cold water for 2 hours
  • 1/3 cup Greek olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Greek honey
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried Greek oregano
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley
Strain the lentils and add them to a medium saucepan. Fill the pan with water so that the lentils are covered and bring to a boil over medium-high heat with the lid on the pan. Turn off the heat and let the lentils stand for about ten minutes. Strain them again and set them aside. Pour the olive oil into a deep skillet. Set the heat to medium and let it warm for about a minute. Add the onions and saute until they just begin to get soft. This should take about 2-3 minutes. Add the carrots and saute for anothr 2-3 minutes.

Stir in the coriander, allspice, cinnamon, and bay leaves. Stir in the rice and lentils. Cook the mixture together for about a minute. Stir in the broth, salt, pepper, honey, vinegar, and oregano. Cover the skillet and cook until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce to a simmer on low heat and cook until all the water absorbs. Stir in the parsley just before serving.

This is what the pilafi will end up looking like

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.
