I’ve been baking madly this week as I have the food and wine expo coming up this weekend.
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!
During the last couple of weeks I’ve been writing about the Mediterranean diet and it’s wonderful benefits.
Recently the Bloomberg Global Health Index announced Italy as the healthiest country in the world! Despite the struggling economy in this country, they have continued to value healthy eating!
