Lamb Kleftiko is a traditional Greek dish of lamb slowly cooked in parchment paper. The name originates from the word “Klepht” (meaning thief). Klephts were highwaymen who stole lambs and cooked it in sealed pits to avoid detection.
As we are not huge dessert people, I am always looking for dessert recipes that are not too sweet and can be whipped up in a couple of minutes. This recipe for Ricotta with Honey, Cinnamon and Berries was perfect for Greek date night.
Avgolemono is an egg lemon sauce that I have wanted to make for ages. As this week was Greek date night, it was the perfect occasion to make a traditional Greek meatball soup that incorporates this sauce.
“Rabo Encendido” roughly translates to “Tail on Fire”. This is a bit deceiving as there are no chillies or even pepper in this Cuban oxtail stew ( traditional Cuban dishes aren’t hot). Feel free to add hot sauce if you want a bit of a kick.
