Vegan Lachmajou


This is a Middle Eastern (possibly Armenian), Greek Cypriot dish that resembles a mini pizza with minced meat (usually lamb) and spices, which is popular in many Middle Eastern countries.  I was so inspired by it that I created my very own vegan version, with my own interpretation and touch.  I do hope you will drool over it as much as we did – seriously, this is an impressive dish, which exudes the most exotic […]

Mamma’s Greek Style Orzo with Mushrooms


Oh, this really was delicious.  My mum used to make a tomatoed pilaffi, which she used to serve with many other things – salads and, sadly, pieces of meat.

An ancient recipe passed down – inspired by my ex-ex-ex-boyfriend’s mum’s grandma. And how would I know ?  Well, his mother spent most of her time in the kitchen, and I took great delight passing the time there with her – I have to say it was the most aromatic place I had ever been in.  Of Maltese origin, this recipe was cooked with either rabbit, or pork, or some other meat – but this […]
