Anzac Biscuit Ice-Cream Sandwich with Vissino Glyko

It's been months and finally I have found time to write another post.  Earlier this year I volunteered to be the fundraising officer at Evangeline's kindergarten.   Me being me decided to do something different than the usual mothers day/fathers day fundraiser and put all my energy in producing a kindergarten cookbook.

Tiropita with hand stretched filo pastry - Greek Mama Project

Recipe: Strifti tiropita
By: Dina Tzouras,  Highett

I make a pretty good spanakopita and hortopita but I still have a long way to mastering the "verga" (thin long rolling pin used to open filo pastry)...however watching this master at work stretching paper thin filo pastry by hand was out of this world.

Tsipouro Watermelon & Pomegranate Mojitos

Summer is here and what a way to use up all that homemade tsipouro I brought back from Greece.

Salmon Ceviche and Prawn Crackers

What to snack on a sunny summers day? Salmon Ceviche and mojitos with a Greek twist of course.

The ceviche takes only about 10 minutes to prepare.

Cypriot olive bread

Recipe: Cypriot olive bread
By: Kiria Roula, Alexandroupolis but originally from Cyprus

Our neighbour in Greece, Kiria Roula, made this for us on our last visit in 2013.  So I took a photo and lost the recipe. So as she was giving Evangeline her 2 freshly laid eggs the other morning I asked if I could have it.  Lucky for me she was making a big batch the next day.  So armed with my trusty iPhone, pen and paper off I went 2 meters down the road.

Vine leaf saganaki with oxymelo

I'm pretty sure I saw a similar recipe in one of the Gourmet Traveller magazine's a few years ago. From memory it was an A la Greque recipe which used kefalograviera.  (which by the way I prefer)  I didn't write down the recipe as I never follow them but vividly remember the photo.  It was beautiful!
