My take on traditional Greek food

Made an attempt to recreate a favorite meal that Rafael and I often feast on at Evvia. Very simple food, but delicious.

Lamb loin chops marinated in olive oil, garlic, thyme, and oregano.

Unfortunately, I don't have a charcoal or mesquite grill.

Olive-oil roasted potatoes. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside.

Galaktoboureko

And finally...

Unfortunately, I haven't mastered Carlo's fancy digital camera... but you can get an idea here

And Galaktoboureko =)

For the most part, everything turned out pretty tasty. In the future, I will add more herbs to the lamb, and change to semolina flour in the Galaktoboureko.

Joan, I hope you know Rafael is the luckiest man on earth...! And make sure you remind him of that daily ;)

It just looks amazingly delicious and moist, I also like it medium rare, and the wedges just finish it of perfectly delicious... :D
