It’s Moussaka not mousse kaka!

Ah Moussaka! This is a very popular dish in Greece. For those who have seen the film ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ you will know all about Mousse kaka, I mean moussaka! Moussaka is usually made with lamb mince but we make it with beef mince.

It’s a Pastitsio!

I couldn’t have a gluten free greek blog without sharing my simple and tasty pastitsio recipe. Pastitsio is an Italian word, but the Greeks and Mediterranean’s all have their own variations. This is a dish that my mum has made time and time again for family and friends who may not want to stuff their faces with souvlaki but still want a ‘little’ meat.

Happy New Year! Gluten Free Vasilopita

Happy New Year Everyone! To celebrate I have made a gluten free Vasilopita cake. Vasilopita is a cake or bread that is made to celebrate the first day of the new year in Greece and many other places in Eastern Europe. The cake contains a lucky coin and whoever gets the slice with the coin in will have good luck thrust upon them! I have received the coin quite a few times much to my delight!
