Hi folks, well you’re not getting a recipe this week, you are getting an introduction to my new food blog Greek Olives And Honey where I will be sharing some of my favourite Greek inspired recipes and photos from the marvelous islands of Greece.
I’m certainly not abandoning Larder Love, how could I, it has been part of my life since 2008 and so much of my life has been chronicled here over that time. No, I am merely giving my Greek recipes their very own platform and their own wee place to shine.
Greek Olives And Honey has only just started so I have just a handful of recipes up their so far. To be honest I had forgotten just what a hassle starting a blog from scratch was, so it took me a while to sort out all the technicalities by myself. There is still work to be done on the site, but I thought it looked good enough to share with you now.
The recipes on greek Olives And Honey will be a mixture of traditional Greek recipes, some recipes where I use Greek ingredients to create something new and traditional recipes with a wee twist here and there. It is all about that marvelous thing, the Mediterranean diet, a healthy way of eating that encompasses great food and loads of amazing flavours.
For anyone who has never tried Greek food, or whose idea of this fabulous cuisine is limited to store-bought tzatziki, then I hope my new blog will maybe inspire you to trying out some new dishes and maybe adding some to your family’s monthly menu.
So trot on over to Greek Olives And Honey just now and you’ll see my recipe for Koulourakia which are the Greek Easter biscuits featured in the photo above. I made these for the members of the Greek class I’ve been attending at Strathclyde Uni and they all loved them.
You can also reach Greek Olives And Honey by clicking on the special link box in my sidebar. I will be renaming my Facebook page so that it incorporates both blogs and readers there will get the best of both worlds.
