There’s a lovely expression, ‘Let’s go Greek, endaxi! Now it (very) loosely translates to mean we all love a good Greek meal... and yes we do!
one of the food trends we’re loving right now is all of us are trying – no, indeed fully intending – to become cooking experts in all manner of international cuisines. Asian recipes are enjoying a real run for their money – we’re even rolling up sushi in seaweed at home ourselves – who would have thought! And Italian, of course, is right up there as a perennial favourite, Spag Bol being in the top three or four recipes we cook each night across Australia. But Greek? It’s too delicious for words but it’s a little unsung and certainly there are not enough Greek restaurants across the country to thrill our palates with the very tasty dishes. So to fix this right up and give you recipes which could and should rightfully nudge your good Spag Bol out of the way a few times a week, we are ‘going Greek endaxi’, which really translates to mean, Let’s go Greek, ok! So turn to page 94 and begin your journey through a collection of traditional favourites where you can ‘simmer, roast and grill you way through meat, seafood and vegies’ (how good does that sound?) and all with a healthy twist, hooray! Think about it. You can become a Grecian goddess of moussaka, souvlaki and more – I’m likin’ the sound of that – and delight anyone and everyone who sits at your table. Then really stand out and serve an easy one-bowl Greek yoghurt and lemon cake with honey baked grapes and figs on page 102, for dessert, with a cup of tea, or anytime really – you don’t need a reason. Yum! Go check the pages, pretend you’re on a Greek island and get cooking. Or even better, forget the Greek island, take a look at all our gorgeous outdoor living ideas beginning page 16, be inspired for your own places and enjoy your fabulous meals out there. Don’t miss the garden pages either and you’re set for the next few spring and summer months ahead. Enjoy and see you next issue.
