Greek Burgers

Greek burgers

It's not rocket science, but they are to die for! An alternative way to serve homemade burgers. For the patties, I used the recipe found here, but I replaced the ground beef with ground pork.

Roasted pork belly

Pork belly is a fatty meat, but if you cut it in pieces you can easily remove the excess fat. You get a crispy and juicy meat with all the flavors of the greek herbs.

Greek salad

Greek salad


My favourite, all time classic, salad is definitely Greek salad. It's smells like summer, and if you find good juice ripe tomatoes, good olives and good quality feta it will make it just wonderful. Use a wide plate instead of bowl so as the olive oil and vinegar is "touching" all the ingredients instead of being concentrate at the very depth of your bowl. While you eat, dip bread and do "papares" as it is called.

Kayanas with peppers

Kayanas - Scrambled eggs with peppers


Kayana is an omelette with tomatoes. In this mix you can add your favorite ingredient, like cheese, olives, sun-dried tomatoes. It's a very quick recipe, very easy and it’s considered a summer recipe, when the tomatoes are juicy. It’s a perfect children recipe because it’s made fast and with fresh ingredients.

Stuffed marconi peppers with eggplants and rice

Stuffed peppers with eggplants and rice
A vegeterian version of Greek stuffed vegetables, with eggplants and pine nuts. I have only tried this recipe with red marconi peppers, but I guess any kind of pepper will be just fine.

Shrimps with saffron-mustard sauce

Shrimps with saffron and mustard
I know this photo is kind of creepy and you may think the shrimp is going to pop out the photo and chase you down, but this dish is sooo delicious and you will need at least 2 slices of good bread to taste the sauce. Once again really easy and fast..
