There are many of you travelling over to Europe this year and some of you are first timers, which can be a little scary and overwhelming to say the least.
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
Well, it's been quite a few weeks (we were on the west coast of the Peloponnese pictured above) since I last blogged...a thousand apologies for my laziness! Actually, my laptop was playing up in Greece so I only managed to get one blog up...and then on our return home..we hit the pavement running!
It’s hard not to get a little nostalgic at this time of the year – it’s cold and wet here in Australia and when photos of my beloved friends and relatives living it up in warmth in the Northern Hemisphere, in particular when Greece and Italy pop up, I can’t help but want to jump on a plane and join them.
If you love Greek food, you will love this dish! The mince is infused with fresh herbs and spices, which makes an ordinary meatball turn into an extraordinary Greek meatball! Served on a bed of al dente pasta and you have one very tasty and comforting dish!
