Pastitsada from Corfu

Pastitsada or Παστιτσάδα in Greek is one of the most traditional dishes that you can have on the beautiful island of Corfu in Greece. It is fair to say it was my main dish for my holidays last year and a great recipe to have.

There are always recipes that can be labelled as “traditional” and there are others that can be labelled as more “modern”. Those that can be named as traditional are ones  which ussualy come from generation to generation and they were introduced to me my from my mother and my relatives.

Some others though come up naturally when you try to mix up things when it’s Sunday on your home and have some time to be creative. So how can you be creative in cooking?Well, fish is one place to start with.
