The first time I ever ate out was when I was 13 – yep 13! Growing up in a Greek home, surrounded by a healthy Mediterranean cuisine you could wish for, there was no need to eat out.
It was just over 33 years ago when I first set my eyes on this piece of paradise.
Greg and I had just been married 6 months earlier and he wanted to take me to ‘a great holiday destination’. He informed me we would be camping and it would be fun!
The last time Greg took me camping was during our honeymoon. We had just had a fabulous week in the Whitsundays, cruising the islands and swimming in the most stunning of places. We snorkelled, viewed the Great Barrier Reef, tasted Spanish mackerel and soaked in the sun. It was a fabulous start to our forever.
Then he took me camping. To Mt Kaputar. It was COLD!
Being raised in a Greek home surrounded by delicious Greek bakes, I'm always on the hunt for different ideas for putting my twist on these classic old favourites.
I have chosen five of my favourite Greek bakes to put a twist on each of them.
Favourite Greek Bake No. 1 – Bougatsa
Happy New Year friends! What a scorching start to the year it’s been! If you’re anything like me, there’s no cooking going on or let’s say very minimal, as it’s the only way to keep the house cool and not overwork the air-conditioner!
