Tiropita with Feta cheese

Street food, snack, meze or something to enjoy at any moment is Tiropita!

A very delicious cheese pie, made with Feta cheese and eggs, something between a pie and a Soufflé!

Warm or cold, with coffee, tea, beer or wine it is absolutely delicious!

Every country has their own street food!

When in a different country make it a point to have the street food of the area, paying special attention to the way the food is prepared and how clean everything is! Also look at the person behind the cart, and their hands, how does it feel, inviting, you get a good feeling, then go ahead and have some, otherwise do not play with your vacation time! And your health!

Don’t go with the logic that heat kills all and it is just fine!

This is a very important detail if you don’t want to get sick!

Ask many questions and never assume!

I remember in one of our vacations to Colombia I was ready to get a piece from a cluster hanging from a tree thinking it was cheese, thank god someone asked me if I knew what that was, I said cheese and he said with a smile, no, Iguana eggs!

Needless to say, I went no further!

In Greece, they have so many to choose from, but the most famous and delicious is the Souvlaki!

Delicious lamb or pork and chicken chunks, marinated in all the amazing herbs and spices of the region and roasted in charcoal, make the best street food!

Tiropita, spanakopita, koulouri with Sesame and so much more are available and it is clean food! Delicious food and very inexpensive!

come together and they give us perfection!

Summer and salads, with vegetables, picked at the perfect moment we need them, that is what makes a perfect salad!

Not everyone has a garden which is the ideal way, but we make the best of the situation.

We look and see if there are any local farmers markets and we visit them, they are bursting with seasonal products, and it is a celebration, the land celebrates a job well done with the different colors, textures, and flavors, it’s like it’s saying to us, I am strong and no matter what you do to me I will still feed you and provide for you….You are not kind to me but I have staying power and I care for you…

Unconditional Love!

I like to pick the gifts of the land myself and I am fortunate to have a farm very close to my house, what a delightful time I enjoy!

I want you to know the secrets for the best Greek tomato salad.

Here they are!
