An easy dish to make and quite delicious if you like potatoes.
I spent many holidays in my youth, cycling round the islands in Greece and had many a dish with potatoes just like these. Potatoes and eggplant with everything!
What a hospitable nation. Everyone I met on my travels wanted me to stay with them, and I had a dinner invitation to someone’s home every night. Everyone offered me Ouzo, a 14th century aperitif flavored with anise, originally made by monks at Mount Athos. I hated the drink but it was considered impolite not to join your host in a toast.
Let me know what you decided to drink with this recipe….
