Stories, flavors and memories from Smyrna…

This nostalgic article will be a mental trip to Smyrna, one of our lost homes… We will try to weave a short story through the everyday lives of people of Smyrna, through the buildings and the port of the city, objects and souvenirs, and of their course food and desserts. In the end, we will make Smyrnian peinirli with kefalograviera cheese, ham, bacon, egg and grape tomatoes!

Semolina halva, traditional and modern too

In our first fasting and vegan article we research the history and variations of semolina halva in Greece and abroad, and make a halva 2 in 1, with a traditional layer with almonds and raisins and a more modern one with chocolate, cashews and dried kiwi.
