Hi Didi, My name is Rebecca and I'm from Chennai in Southern India. I am passionate about cooking authentic dishes from around the world. Sometimes I do a week of some authentic food from a particular country. I did Cuban week once and I was looking to do a Greek week when I was looking for authentic Greek recipes. I happened to come across your Pastichio video just a couple of days ago. Where I come from, I do not get all the ingredients mentioned in many international recipes. I have since been addicted to your blog. I tried the Pastichio immediately with Penne Rigate (Long macaroni or zitoni are not available at least in our part of our country as much as Kefalotyri and Romano cheese- and lucky I had Parmesan from the US to substitute.) The Pastichio came out quite well, I should say. And thank you so much for the recipe. And today, I made your Mini Meat Loaves with Dill Mashed Potato Topping with chicken as we do not get turkey meat at all times. Turkey meat is available only during Christmas or Easter. I came out really delicious and the aroma did waft through my modest house!!! My husband loved it! Thank you again Didi. I have noted some more of them from what I have gone through that I will be able to do with whatever is available. There are quite a number more that I have yet to read. I sincerely feel very lucky to have come across your blog. Thanks once again and God bless!
Rebecca you literally made my day today. I was actually at a company function when I read your post to me and couldn't respond at that time!! Thank you so much my new friend and I wish we lived closer!! ♥
Thank you, Didi for the reply. Yes, I too wish we lived closer! But I do visit the United States now and then as my brother lives in Atlanta. And yes, I do pick up some ingredients not available in my place from there. BTW, I was looking at your Baked Mediterranean Fish. You mentioned it could be served with fries as Greeks do. Is that different from French Fries? Is there a different way these fries are done. I read elsewhere that Greek fries are cooked in soybean oil and tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, oregano and cheese. Please let me know. Also is there an email for you where I could send you private messages? Thank you and God bless!
Hello Rebecca,That is fantastic you are able to visit your brother in the states!Greek fries are the same as American, deep fried, sometimes ppl cook them in olive oil too. I've never heard of the other version of fries. I am thinking with the lemon juice they will become soggy. This method of contact is fine. You can also visit my FB and pm me there if you like as well! It's supposed to snow tonight, comfort food comes to mind...
Hi Didi, just wanted to know if the Rice and Chicken Loaf is a traditional Greek dish. Take care!
Hello Rebecca!No it is not, not to my knowledge that is...
