Mediterranean Cuisine

I just came back from my second vacation in Crete and this time brought along a true cookbook of Cretan Cooking. This is a place to share your favourite recepies that are made according to the traditions of the region. Cretan diet and Mediterranean diet are slightly different but the basics are the same. Both diets are based on eating very large amounts of fruit and vegetables. And olive oil. Contrary to American Cardiologist Association suggestions of a low fat diet (especially when diagnosed with heart disease), Cretans get 1/3 of daily calories from olive oil. And heart disease is almost unheard of there.

I will be posting here some more theory shortly and also the meals I have already prepared at home :)
