12 Μαρ Σαρακοστή
Today it was Clean Monday, the first day of the Greek Orthodox Lent (Σαρακοστή).
… So my girlfriend and I decided to do some of the traditional dishes. We bought lagana (bread), and did split pea with octopus in the oven, cooked octopus with spaghetti and tomato sauce, shrimps grilled just for 30 seconds on each side, and of course, gigantes!
A traditional Greek food made from large beans cooked in sauce, in the oven! Delicious, rustic, Greek, wonderful food! Many thanks to Akis Petretzikis for the recipes, and Soul kitchen Studio for the wonderful plates!
