WHAT WINE TO CHOOSE FROM ?


Whatever red is of your preference would be fine with the sausage stroganoff, yet if you got tired from the same old Cabernets, Merlots & Syrah, you are adventurus enough and willing to explore some "old-new world" wines you may try an indigenous Xinomavro (P.D.O. Rapsani & Naoussa) - either as single varietal or blended with other local grapes of Greece and you will discover a whole new world of tastes & fragrances.

SUMMER FEAST ON YOUR HOLIDAYS IN GREECE







It is quite common to the visitors of a country to exploring  its local cuisine and tasting the local food and beverages. 

In a country like Greece which is rich in both its unique products & recipes, this "trip" can be a real feast of flavors and enjoyment for all food & wine lovers...

Seizing upon my recent visit to the beautiful Mount Pelion, Magnesia, i have chosen a real classic Greek recipe - the one that my grandmother used to cook for me - accompanied by an brand new authentic Greek wine, EXIS by ESTATE MANOLESAKIS

Enjoy !!






Minced Meat Rissoles with Cumin


Directions

  1. Soak the bread in water for 10 minutes and discard the crust.
  2. Squeeze the water from the bread and mix with the mince, egg, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and 3 tablespoons of the wine. (The best results for mixing are always achieved by using your hands.)
  3. When properly mixed make long thin shapes, like fat cigars, about the length of your finger (around 15 of them), roll them in the flour and fry in the vegetable oil on medium heat, making sure that they are crisp all over.
  4. In the meantime, put the olive oil in a saucepan and, when it is warm, add the tomatoes and the rest of the wine and cook slowly for 5 minutes, stirring and making sure it does not stick.
  5. Add the soutzoukakia as they come out of the frying pan, roll them in the tomato sauce, add a little more water if needed, cover and cook slowly for 10 minutes.
  6. Garnish with chopped parsley.
  7. With its rich sauce it can be served with plain white rice, or mashed potatoes as a main dish.can also be a very good starter for a dinner party.

  8. Serves 4 persons as a main course! Serves 7 persons as a starter, allowing 2 per person!
