Here's another not very common, but quite traditional dish, coming from the region of Eastern Rumelia straight... to your table! If you try it while here, you 'll immediately ask for the recipe!
Steaming rice, lamb haslets, onions and flavouring spices all wrapped-up in veal suet. Such an intense taste! Even if it is preferred during Easter festivities, you may enjoy it any time of the year!
Anchovy wrapped in vine leaves
This is a sea dish that is preferred in the city of Kavala. With all the freshness of the open sea and embraced by the vine itseld, this dish stands out and is... full of summer!
Praousti of Samothrace
"Praousti" is a kind of fruit that thrives on the island of Samothrace. It grows on the trees and it is something between a bullace and a plum. This is where you may enjoy as a "spoonful-sweet" confection!
"Gouna" mackerel fish
"Gouna" means "fur" and even fish wear it, although not the one you 're thinking about! Even though many fish can become "Gouna", that is dried-up or sun-dried, mackerel really stands out as a unique dish in the Eastern Macedonia region and especially in the city of Kavala!
"Lachania" of Evros
This is actually a hogget (lamb) or veal cooked with lettuce, small tomatoes and red hot pepper. Who can resist such a spicy dish from Evros?
y of you must have tried this dish in various taverns and traditional food places around Greece. However, this is its place of origin! Boiled chunks of meat set in their beef-tea gel with extra spices. What a taste!
On the mountain areas of Samothrace and Thassos, the skewered kiddlings have a much more better taste than usual. There are many amazing and original ways to roast them, but whatever the cooking approach may be, they are really delicious!
