Fava me loukanika



While I was in Greece last year, I bought a bag of the famous Santorini fava.. In summer it's traditionally matched with sliced red onion and capers, grilled octopus, or even a tomato caper sauce.  Being winter in Melbourne and having a heap of home made Greek sausages I thought I'd combine the two.  I made a version of spetsofai.  A sausage dish with peppers and tomatoes.

Greek Village sausages - Thracian style - Greek Mama Project!


Recipe: Loukanika me portokali
By: Koula Takouridis, Melbourne, Dromana, Alexandroupolis


It's winter in Melbourne, so naturally it's sausage making season.  Several weeks ago I was invited to my friend Maria's house to watch the boys make Italian sausages and salami.  That experience brought back memories of our sausage making days so I asked mum to show me how she makes the "loukanika" I grew up with.  The orange skin spiked ones.  Yummo.

Fried cheese pastries with petimezi!



A few weeks ago I made a couple of spanakopites and had left over home made filo pastry. It wasn't enough to make another whole pita so I made fried cheese pastries.
