These feta eggplant roll-ups are a Greek version of the classic Italian dish aubergine parmigiana - but using feta instead of parmesan and mozzarella! It’s one of those Greek meze dishes we almost always order in tavernas to make sure there are a few vegetarian options for me (yes, I’m the only vegetarian in the family!). The eggplant is first roasted until soft, then rolled around a filling of feta, tomatoes and herbs. These little rolls are baked until the feta is melted and bubbly, and they make the perfect appetiser or light main course. This is a brilliant vegetarian dish with which to celebrate the simple pleasures of Mediterranean produce in the summer. Those fresh, ripe tomatoes and glossy, curvy aubergines, almost bursting from their skins. The slow-cooked pleasure of tomatoes with olive oil, onions and garlic. This is the best of Mediterranean simplicity. There are only a handful of ingredients, but this truly is such a satisfying, hearty, smile-inducing dish. I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to try out, and when I came across this one for eggplant roll-ups, I knew I had to give it a go. This side dish quickly became one of the standard things we order when visiting a greek taverna. The fact that it’s so easy to make at home, gives it a few extra points and also added eggplant to my weekly supermarket list. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
These salmon and potato cakes hit all of my crave buttons—they’re hot and crispy, cool and creamy, and they’re laced with scallions, garlic and ginger. A hint of sesame oil and tamari (or soy sauce) gives them a slight Asian flare, while a quick yogurt sauce lends cool creaminess. The cakes are easy to make and are an awesome prep-ahead dinner or appetizer. I prefer to use wild salmon in this recipe (it’s a great time to use frozen salmon—just defrost it before baking). Don’t be tempted to use Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes in place of the red potatoes—their higher water content won’t allow the cakes to brown properly.

This classic Quiche Lorraine is a savory French tart baked in an open faced pastry crust filled with Gruyere or Swiss cheese, bacon and a rich, eggy custard! My tasty quiche is baked in an easy to make all butter pie crust and and served warm for a special occasion breakfast or brunch treat!
I like to make a good old spinach pie, a Spanakopita, but this mixes up that old favourite into something new. The perfect picnic piece, this tart is savoury and moreish, lightening the flavour of cooked spinach with lemon and herbs, and setting it inside a buttery, flaky pastry case. Something like a British quiche, I love the combination of eggy, cheesey spinach-rich filling with the shortcrust pastry edge. I use aromatic dill and zesty lemon to bring a real feeling of summer sun to the recipe, and the addition of feta, ricotta and cream cheese, alongside pine nuts, just ensures a rich, nutty and satisfying mouthful. It’s perfect for lunch in the garden, with a simple side salad, and also works perfectly as a slightly special picnic or packed lunch.
This ham and cheese pie is a homemade version of something you often find in Greek bakeries and pastry shops. It’s a great snack that I include in the kids’ lunch boxes to mix things up, but it’s also a yummy afternoon snack for me and perfect finger food for a birthday party, or picnic. The ham and cheese pie crust of flaky, buttery puff pastry adds a little crunch on top, whilst the mouthwatering filling of slightly herby tomato, ham and cheese ticks all the boxes for kids and adults alike! You can enjoy this hot or cold, but make sure to indulge in good quality ham - this is a simple recipe, so the flavour of the ingredients makes all the difference. 😊
These Greek walnut-filled chocolates, or Kariokes, are a moreish delight. Kariokes, filled with the rich darkness of cocoa and a hint of brandy, are the epitome of indulgence, for me (and not just for me - they’ve been my husband’s favourite since he was a boy!). When we have friends around for supper, my take on Greek walnut crescent cookies are a perfect treat after dinner. Greek bakeries make these into perfect crescent shapes, but the easiest method I’ve found at home is to roll the mix into ‘sausage’ shapes, press to slightly flatten the bottom, and freeze them, before slicing (incidentally, that’s pretty much how I do my chocolate mosaic with halva too!). This recipe uses Petit Beurre biscuits, but any rich, buttery and plain biscuit will do the trick here. In fact, the recipe traditionally uses up the crumbs of Vasilopita (Greek Lucky New Year’s Cake) and Melomakarona (Greek Christmas Honey Cookies); keep your eyes out for these recipes on fooodlove over the festive period, but in the meantime, a plain biscuit like a Petit Beurre is a great alternative. This hack makes for a quick and easy recipe, which nevertheless will wow at dinner parties - or you might like them so much you keep them just for you! These are the perfect treat for darker wintery days; imagine a roaring fire, a rich dinner, a glass of red wine - and then a coffee and my Kariokes for dessert. What heaven!

This crustless zucchini pie is the perfect lunch for a sunny day in the garden. The recipe originally comes from a friend in Crete. It’s both easy, and a great way to use up the glut of courgettes we seem to enjoy every July and August! Accompanied by a side salad (and maybe a chilled glass of white wine!), this courgette tart is so savoury and satisfying. The feta, parmesan and eggs give it that cheesey, almost quiche-like consistency, whilst the grated courgette/zucchini and the fresh herbs give it a real green vibrancy and fresh taste. Since it’s without a crust, it’s a really healthy, light option too. I’ve even been known to wrap the whole thing in tin foil and take it to the park for a picnic - and you can be sure that none ever comes back!
