    Lunch 2021

    I've never seen the cultivated variety. Here it grows as a weed, mostly where we plant other things and water. Since it's easy to manage, I'll let it grow wherever it won't block other plants. The wild version is quite fleshy, and I like it best sauteed with eggy, tomatoes, feta and garlic; but also in salads.

    Dinner 2021

    Dakos, with tomatoes, feta, garlic, capers, olive oil, oregano, olive oil. Pastisio with a filling made of muhsrroms, walnuts, some egg as binder, some seitan fo protein and chew, tomatoes, carrots, onion, herbs, spices - mostly thyme, oregano and nutmeg. Pasta, eggplants. Topped with bechamel with a good amount of nutmeg as well. I have no picture of it sliced, so added one from the same dish a while ago. I didn't make tzatziki this time. Ouzo.
  9. It was cottage cheese or cottage and cream. Maybe raisins maybe plain. No jam or nuts. It seemed a common preparation, served in many restaurants in Slovenia.
  10. Leftover palchinta. Filled with ricotta and sour cream. Lightly warmed. Topped with home made preserved grapes, a bit of cinnamon, almonds. I had once something similar in Slovenia, topped with a sort of milk foam, but since than I can't seem to find this dish online.

    Dinner 2021

    Hummus. Somewhat in the local style of Jerusalem. Peppery olive oil, some garlic-lemon sauce, green schug (freshly made with chilies, parsley, garlic, olive oil), toasted slivered almonds, cumin. Soft and warm pitas, tomatoes, onion in lemon juice, olives and pickles. And soda water (sparkling drinks work well with hummus - many like soft drinks or beer, but for me it's soda, or rarely beer).

    Dinner 2021

    Cecio e pepe. Made simply - thick pasta water, toasted pepper, pecorino. I did add some sodium citrate as an insurance for the emulsion. To my second serving I added some chickpeas we had leftover, which I guess make this cecio e ceci e pepe Also lettuce and tomatoes with a mustardy vinaigrette. And finished off with cold brandy with some homemade cherry syrup mixed in.
  14. Palacsintas filled with ricotta and homemade cherry preserves. We topped it with some slivered almonds and more syrup, but sadly I didn't take a picture.

    We are overwhelmed with mangoes. So it's mango for dinner. With coconut rice.

    Favorite Risotto?

    Orzotto is the Italian term Barely = orzo. Which is unintuitive to me, since orzo pasta seems more like rice, and since orrez is Hebrew for rice as well.

    Favorite Risotto?

    Mushroom is indeed the crowd favorite, and for a reason. Risotto alla milanese (with saffron and a good stock) is a classic. I've made a lemon and shrimp risotto that I thought was quite good. I also like risotto with peas, you can make it in the style of risi e bisi with prosciutto or other dry ham. Also, when you run out of risotto or get tired of it, barley make a nice alternative. It has a somewhat different texture, but works well in most if not all risotto recipes. I use it sometimes for variety.

    @BonVivant Beautiful pictures as always. The Greek do seem to see the value of authenticity and of keeping (some) things as they were.
