Mousakas - A must dish when you visit Greece Crete Chania Dont miss it!
17 Mar 2021

Moussaka is a layered oven casserole dish made with vegetables and meat. The most well-known version of moussakas is made with layers of eggplant slices, cheese, and a meat sauce, topped with a thick béchamel sauce; however, other favorites call for potatoes, zucchini, or a combination of vegetables. More recently, a meatless (vegetarian) version has also become widely available.

Until the early 1900s, moussaka was a more simple dish, using just vegetables and meats. The addition of béchamel sauce is attributed to Nikos... read more

Cretan Gamopilafo or Pilafi Rice Served in Cretan Weddings
17 Mar 2021

 

Gamopilafo, with its name deriving from the combination of the words ‘gamos’ and ‘pilafi’ -translating to ‘wedding’ and ‘rice’ in Greek- is a traditional Greek wedding dish served in most regions of Crete as the celebratory main course.

It is essentially a lamb broth risotto, usually served with pieces of slow-cooked lamb, and for many, the ultimate Greek comfort food. The history behind gamopilafo is unclear. According to urban myth, it is most likely the remnant of the Venetian occupancy of the island.

Saganaki Pan-Seared Greek Cheese
16 Mar 2021

Saganaki is a truly tasty and easy-to-make little appetizer. This dish speaks of the simplicity of Greek cuisine.

To make this Greek favorite, simply buy a firm cheese, lemons, flour, and olive oil. We suggest Graviera sheep's cheese, but you can choose a similar product remembering that it needs to hold its shape without melting too fast. Simply dip medium-to-thick wedges of cheese in cold water and then flour, pan-fry them in olive oil until golden brown, and serve immediately with a good squeeze of lemon on top. Ready in 25 minutes.
