Albanian food?

SPARK | Nov 2, 2004 07:31 AM

Hi Hounds,

I am having a pot luck party where everyone has to bring a dish from a counrty of their family's heritage. I have some Albanians up the family tree, but none close enough to me that are still alive that I can get any recipes from. Just to be different, I thought I would explore some dishes from this region. Most of my friends don't even know where Albania is, so I thought I would show off.

I have done some searching on the web, and it seems the meals consist of a lamb-mint meatball, and chicken in purple walnut sauce. There is just not much info out there.

Does any one have any insight into Albanian cuisine? The meatballs with a cucumber garlic yogurt sauce sound like a good appetizer so far, though. From what I have seen it sounds like a greek influence.
