Foods of Crete

Postby gardenlover » Mon Sep 21, 2015 1:21 pm

I recently purchased a book called "Foods of Crete: Traditional Recipes from the Healthiest People in the World.

It has an abundance of authentic recipes that are easy to prepare. Many of the recipes use quite a bit of fish and olive oil. My favorite so far has been a fish stew. The book is copyrighted so I am not at liberty to share the recipe, but if you are looking for an easy to follow cookbook, with healthy great tasting dishes you may be interested in this book.

B. Specifically Cretan cooking I am not up on, but we have Tselementes +. What is the name, PsaroXXX or something else? I might be able to find it.

First question was - are you Greek? Which I guess you just answered. Neither am I, but a year in Greece and two Classicist parents get you into dolmadheds and koulouria.

I had been asking the name of the dish, but good enough - we will get there.

This reminds me of a doctor who assumed I spoke French, because my last name is French. He spoke to me in French, and I told him I didn't understand. My mother's maiden name was British, but no one in her family spoke with a British accent.

I did not so assme, just tested a hypothesis.

The opposite happens - in certain places people have assumed that since I am obviously American I don't follow the local lingo. That assumption has on occasion benefited me.
