Easy Fig Chutney Recipe with Walnuts & Port

This easy fig and walnut chutney is fragrant with port, cinnamon, star anise, orange zest and maple syrup. It smells just like the holidays, and it’s the perfect addition to cheese platters or cheese plates. For an easy crostini, spoon the chutney over fresh ricotta or brie on toasted baguette slices. It’s also excellent with roasted turkey or pork (as well as on turkey and pork burgers!), and it makes a killer sandwich with cheese (think gruyere, Comté, brie or Taleggio) and arugula. You’ll need cheesecloth and butcher’s twine to bundle the whole spices but if you don’t have one you could use a tea steeper or just add the spices and fish them out at the end.

Mini Cheese pies

These mini cheese pies are so tasty, and so handy! The ideal snack for packed lunches, picnics and birthdays, they are simple to make and everyone seems to love them. These little hand pies take me right back to being a little girl in Rhodes. My mother would make them for the family, and she would call myself and my sister in to help her. My mom would make the dough, and my sister would stuff them with cheese and shape them. I did the ‘finishing touches’! I remember taking up my spot in front of the oven, and refusing to move a muscle until they were done; I was so impatient for them to be cooked! Bite into one of these still warm from the oven, and you’ll get why!

Spicy Feta Dip

Spicy Feta Dip

You probably know feta - a traditional Greek brined cheese made from sheep (or sheep plus goats’) milk, and aged in brine. We’re total feta addicts in our house; I just think it makes everything extra delicious! This spicy feta dip recipe is traditionally called ‘tirokafteri’, and is the perfect combination of creamy, sweet, savoury, tangy and gentle spice. Often offered as a side dish in Greece, this is a great party dip, but we actually enjoy it most often as a spread on our morning sandwich (yep, sandwiches for breakfast!) and as a dip for nachos during movie night (it’s perfect for this)! This is irresistible…and the recipe takes the grand total of five minutes. It’s a no brainer!
