In the past 5 years i keep this blog i tried to have an open mind on other cuisines but also tried to learn a bit more about the origin of the Greek cuisine and what is exactly that characterised it. It is important to know what distinguish one cuisine from another not because you want to put your mark on a recipe but because you want to understand a bit more about the history of the people and the country.
Going back home for Christmas is something that is always a little bit of ritual. Like every celebration there are some things you need to do or expect from some. Like you expect to get some gifts or give some gifts or even eat a turkey or pork if you are in Greece. That is what i was expecting every time i was going back home…a lot of food and my mothers traditional isli desserts.
