I personally don't love okra, but when its cooked right it can be so tasty! For reference to those of you who haven't tried it, its a vegetable that has a slimy texture and is cooked in a red sauce, which is mainly the reason people don't like it.

I wouldn't touch them like that (I generally don't like okra), but my wife bakes them in a tomato sauce with chicken... It's pretty good!

Pickled okra is really good btw, and they have a crunch to them when you pickle them.

Okra is really delicious when cooked Greek style, but it has to be done right. It can't be overcooked or else it gets really slimy.

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.

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.

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 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.
