I've gone and done it now: invited a bunch of people round to my house for a "greek feast" to coincide with the olympics.
I have been looking on greek recipe sites but its tricky sometimes to determine which are the most authentic.
I have some ideas about obvious things to make
hummous/greeksalad/mousakka etc but prefer not to totally stereotype my cooking attempts into such obvious categories. i have found more exotic recipes, especially those with lamb, which i love, but wondered if anyone here has some great suggestions for me.
I am trying to be careful with my pennies right now, so things that are fabulous and impressive and adventurous on a budget would be the greatest.
Also - how about those greek desserts with the shredded wheat and honey and pistachios - anyone from SF know a place where you can buy them ready made? Although I dont mind attempting to bake them also
