Here is the recipe for Pitaroudia…a delicacy from the island of Rhodes!
It is amazing just how each region in Greece has something different to offer!
Something you will find only in that particular place! Rhodes is a beautiful island, I love to visit this island as I have many friends there!
It’s a big island and you always come up with new things to see, eat and so on!
Pitaroudia belongs to them, and they make them perfect!Do visit Rhodes, here are my thoughts,
My Comfort food!
What is my comfort food, the one that makes me feel warm all over! Hilopites with Chicken- Youvetsi
Here is a recipe I love a recipe so dear to my heart because of all the wonderful memories. Youvetsi was a dish that I loved growing up! It was and is my comfort food!
My mother’s favorite recipe and she did it so well! She used Veal or lamb never Beef or chicken!
It was a Sunday meal and my father would bring the best Parmesan available, she would also use a very special butter when cooking Youvetsi or any kind of Pasta,
Youvetsi is the traditional name of this amazing recipe.
The aroma and the taste are carved in my mind and I get a feeling of euphoria every time I think of Sundays in my parent’s house!
Here in Canada chicken is the preferred protein of the majority, therefore chicken it is, and it works so well!
Hilopites with Chicken (Youvetsi)
Hilopites a traditional Greek pasta (comfort food ) children love this food (children friendly)
Just like Orzo we love hilopites!I remember growing up how proud the women were making hilopites and Trahana, using the best ingredients at the time!
They spend days making those homemade kinds of pasta!
Now you find them easy in the supermarket, but when I visit Greece I look for the homemade ones, they are still ladies making them and selling them privately!
The locals are there to help you with all this! Word of mouth advertising is very big in Greece!
This is a nice traditional Greek recipe, it works with Lamb, Veal, and Beef, you just have to cook the meat longer.
A Sunday meal for Greek families, So delicious! The correct name is Youvetsi
