My kitchen in kefalonia

Well, that was certainly an interesting evening of food,fun and friends!
Having decided to stay in and cook last night for ourselves,our friends from home and from fiscardo to use up some delicious prawns, I settled on my menu very easily. Our Greek guest brought local cheese pies for starters and an amazing coconut for desert so I only had to do main courses.
We had a prawn,mint and pea risotto , spaghetti carbonara for the children and a bacon,tomato and feta pasta sauce I bake in the oven. Well that was the idea…
The fuses kept blowing everytime I put the oven on as well as the hob, so after the 4th time I realised that’s why meals take so long to do over here!
Plan B- cook each item one at a time, drink lots of white wine in between and just chill…
First course,melon,Parma ham,roasted peppers,local bread,tatziki,olives,salami.
Second course,spaghetti carbonara,garlic bread
Third course,tomato,onion and basil salad, tomato and feta baked spaghetti
Fourth course(?)risotto with prawns,peas local mint
Fifth (????)course coconut cake with local ice cream
It really wasn’t as large a meal as it sounds but it took about 4 hours from start to finish!!!!!
It was a truly Greek evening with the children swimming in the sea below our apartment whilst we admired the amazing yachts moored in the harbour of fiscardo.
Great times to savour
Going home tomorrow but I tiny bit of me is quite excited as will be the first time I will have seen my new kitchen space.
