This year I wanted to host Easter at my place. Why not? I finally have a kitchen big enough to cook the amount of food needed to feed a bunch of hungry Greeks, and I had a few new recipes I wanted to test out. I made the traditional recipes from scratch: spinach pie, baklava, tzatziki, lemon potatoes, lamb chops – and everything else had a Greek or Mediterranean twist to it, like my "Greek Deviled Eggs". What makes them Greek? Yup, I put some feta in the mixture. Mmm. See below for some bites and stay tuned for recipes..
Chickpea salad with lemon, cheese and herbs
Tzatziki drizzled with olive oil and paprika
Spanakopita! This was one of the faves of the night
Mini Baklava in phyllo shells…numsss
Nice spread. Greeks and Italians usually come hungry. Nice play-by-play on the Spanakopita, looks perfect.
