Since I am (partly) French, is that OK for me to “celebrate” Cinco de Mayo? Or at least make a post about it? Because I had been feeling like making a Mexican lunch for a while, and with Cinco de Mayo just around the corner … well, I figured it would be a great moment to do that.
Yes, I know, it makes no sense when it’s cold and damp outside. But fear not, that does not mean I’m having sauerkraut in the dead of summer! Let’s not overdo it!
I’m taking advantage of my stay in Greece, which just began, to dive into one of my favourite dishes when the sun starts shining: peasant salad, also known as Greek salad.
It’s simple, fresh, tasty … like a beautiful summer day! Enjoy on the balcony, by the beach, with the cicadas singing …
I’ll start off this first post by acknowledging one thing: I love Turkish food!!! It’s so full of flavours and fragrant… what’s not to like?? Having some Turkish ancestry myself, it seemed normal to me to start with a recipe from this beautiful country: gözleme.
