Cypriot olive bread

Recipe: Cypriot olive bread
By: Kiria Roula, Alexandroupolis but originally from Cyprus

Our neighbour in Greece, Kiria Roula, made this for us on our last visit in 2013.  So I took a photo and lost the recipe. So as she was giving Evangeline her 2 freshly laid eggs the other morning I asked if I could have it.  Lucky for me she was making a big batch the next day.  So armed with my trusty iPhone, pen and paper off I went 2 meters down the road.

Vine leaf saganaki with oxymelo

I'm pretty sure I saw a similar recipe in one of the Gourmet Traveller magazine's a few years ago. From memory it was an A la Greque recipe which used kefalograviera.  (which by the way I prefer)  I didn't write down the recipe as I never follow them but vividly remember the photo.  It was beautiful!

Imvros...our storyxxxx

As most of my friends saw on Facebook we spent a few days on Imvros last week.  Imvros which is now known as Gokceada in Turkish was one of two islands that were given to Turkey after the Treaty of Lausanne was drawn up in 1923.
