Country of the Food: Greece | Email to Author               Posted on 20 April 2003 @ 09:44:02

5 lb roasting chicken, skinless
1 lemon -- quartered
1/4 c olive oil
salt and pepper
12 cloves garlic -- crushed
2 ts dried oregano -- plus 3 TB dried oregano
1/3 c fresh lemon juice
2 ts cracked black pepper
6 boiling potatoes -- wedged : and chunked
1 c water -- or 1/2 c lowfat chicken broth -- as : needed
1/4 c flatleaf parsley -- chopped

Consider placing sliced root vegetables (carrots, turnips) and onions in the bottom of the pan that will take the place of a rack and add flavors. Roasting at two oven temperatures gives chicken a crispy outside, and a moist inside. Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Rub chicken inside and out with cut lemon quarters, 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and ground pepper. Place the lemon quarters,4 garlic gloves and 2 teaspoons oregano in the chicken cavity. Place chicken on rack in a roasting pan.

In a small saucepan, combine remaining olive oil, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oregano, coarsely cracked pepper and 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer3 minutes. Remove from heat

Place potatoes and the remaining 8 garlic cloves around the chicken and sprinkle them with remaining 1 tablespoon oregano. Spoon a little of the lemon-oil mixture over the chicken. Pour 1 cup water or broth evenly over potatoes and place in oven. Roast 15 minutes. Baste chicken with some of the lemon-oil mixture and reduce heat to 350 degrees. Roast, basting with lemon-oil mixture every 10-15 minutes, until juices run clear when thigh is pierced with a fork or an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thigh, not touching bone, reads 180 degrees, about 1 1/4 hours.

Transfer chicken to a warmed platter. If potatoes aren't golden, raise heat to 450 degrees and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, adding more water or broth if necessary to prevent sticking. Garnish with parsley.

Country of the Food: Greek | Email to Author               Posted on 20 April 2003 @ 09:45:21

2 lb Zucchini
4 md Potatoes
2 Green peppers
1 Red pepper
2 md Onions
1 c Olive oil
4 md Tomatoes
2 Garlic cloves
1 ts Sugar
Salt & pepper; to taste

Prepare the vegetables: Cut the eggplant, zucchini and potatoes in bite sized chunks (do not peel the zucchini or the eggplant). Remove the stems and seeds from the peppers and slice them into strips. Peel and slice the onions. Dice the tomatoes.

Saute' the vegetables except the tomatoes in the olive oil in small batches. Saut' each batch for 2 or 3 minutes, then remove from the pan, trying to drain some of the oil so that enough oil is left for the next batch. When done, most of the oil should be gone from the pan.

Place the saute'ed vegetables in a baking dish and toss them briefly so that you won't get only one kind of vegetable in one place. Add the tomatoes into the pan and saut' for a couple of minutes. Crush the garlic and add to the tomatoes. Add the sugar, salt and pepper to taste and simmer for another minute.

Pour the tomato sauce on top of the vegetables and bake at 350 F until the vegetables are tender.

Country of the Food: Greece | Email to Author               Posted on 20 April 2003 @ 09:47:48

1 Box filo
2 Sticks butter melted


1 qt Milk
5 Eggs
1/2 c Farina cereal
1/2 c sugar


1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Water
1/2 c Honey
Grated zest form a lemon

First make the custard: scald milk, remove from heat, add sugar and farina and beat together well. Return to heat until thickened. Remove from heat.

Beat eggs well in seperate bowl. Using beater, slowly mix some of the hot milk mixture into egg mixture on medium speed. Then add all egg mixture into milk mixture and blend well. Slowly cook mixture on low heat, stirring constantly until thick, about 20 minutes. Take care with the custard - it will curdle if the addition of the egg is not handled carefully. Cool completely and chill. Mixture will be thick and creamy.

Assemble: butter 6 whole filo sheets and overlap each in a buttered 9 x 13 pan so part of filo laps over edges of pan. Spread on all of filling. Flip edges of filo over to cover filling. Cover with 6 more buttered filo sheets and overlap and cover as before.Work quickly so filo doesnt dry out. Score 2/3rds through filo prior to baking. Bake in a 350 oven for 20 to 30 minutes or golden. Prepare the syrup by boiling all for 10 minutes. Pour hot syrup over cooled pastry. This is a very special Greek pastry.
