Procedure


Notes

My grandfather came from Greece in the early 1900s. He was a chef and restaurant owner in the San Francisco area. I would like to say that this recipe was passed down from him, but unfortunately he disappeared when I was 7 or 8 and I never really knew him. But my love of Greek food cames from him and I think he would approve of this recipe. It uses lots of garlic, nutmeg and cinnamon.
