Zaytinya. 701 9th St NW. Washington DC

José Andrés opened his first Greek restaurant in the city a decade ago, and it really is a remarkable space with terrific food. The freshness of Mediterranean ingredients, combined with the slow-cooked lamb, the fried parcels and pastry choices make this a good fit for the tapas-tasters and indoor picnic enthusiasts. 66 more words

Gorgeous Greek Lamb Kleftiko

Yesterday I decided that it was so sunny that we should eat holiday food, so I made a Lamb Kleftiko, and boy was it good! There’s something really special about opening up the parcel after 2 hours of cooking to incredible smells! 269 more words

I’m sorry, but I’ve got a confession to make. I’m burned out. Running on empty. This whole business of going to a restaurant every week takes its toll, you know (I’m not expecting sympathy, don’t worry). 1,619 more words

From the heart of Cyprus. If only every tourist organisation in Europe got it together to employ someone like Filakia Tonia to research and write a booklet on its traditional food. 69 more words

Limassol restaurant review published in the Cyprus Mail, October 2010

Although it took an age to get around to it, I’ve recently became a huge fan of the CTO’s wine routes after a few days exploring some of the highlights of the Krosochoria. 754 more words

It was well worth the wait!

Earlier on I posted that something was cooking in my kitchen.  Was it worth the wait? You bet it was!

The weather is much cooler now, and hot, comforting food is starting to replace the lighter salads and pasta dishes. 499 more words
