I have been living in Athens Greece since August and have been trying to find fresh tarragon and corn meal ever since. I have tried albeit unsuccessfully, to grow the tarragon on my balcony. If no one responds i suppose I could go to a gardening site for growing tips.
Also, i was just in Zagorohoria, a mountainous region of Greece near the Albanian border and had the best hortopita I have ever eaten. What made it so good was the addition of cornmeal to the homemade filo (I believe it was simply sprinkled on the bottom of the pan, and on the top of the bottom layer of filo, before adding the greens mix). I cannot find cornmeal anywhere here. I did find a fine consistency corn type flour (not starch) but the corn taste was lost. could anyone be of help?
