Σε εκείνους που σκέπτονται πως η Ελλάδα σήμερα δεν έχει καμία σημασία ας μου επιτραπεί να πω ότι δεν θα μπορούσαν να κάνουν μεγαλύτερο λάθος. Η σημερινή, όπως και η παλιά Ελλάδα, έχει υψίστη σημασία για οποιονδήποτε ψάχνει να βρει τον εαυτό του.

Pork Meatloaf with Greek Potatoes

Pork Meatloaf with Greek Potatoes

American meatloaf dates from the late 1870s. Those preparing the dish were told to chop up whatever meat was on hand, the meat most likely being beef. To that they added salt, pepper, onion, egg and milk-soaked bread. In Greece, meatloaf is referred to as rolo (Ρολό)...

Και λίγο ιστορία Τώρα θα εξετάσω την ελληνική κοινότητα στο Βέλγιο.  Αν και οι Έλληνες ζούσαν ήδη στο Βέλγιο πριν από το 1956, η μεγαλύτερη μετανάστευση από την Ελλάδα στο Βέλγιο έγινε μεταξύ 1956 και 1964. Υπολογίζεται ότι τότε περίπου 20.000 Έλληνες προσελκύσθηκαν...

I’m Paul James, a food and travel writer, and columnist, I have three blogs and a website, but most importantly I have made thousands of friends around the world promoting businesses in the hospitality and tourism industry worldwide. What I’m trying to say is that whatever life throws at you, you can overcome that issue by talking to someone about it, never suffer alone, and most importantly never be ashamed to share your story, because one day your story maybe someone else’s guiding light.
I also want to thank ‘Greek News and Radio’ for allowing me to get my Greek-inspired recipes that I have created from my humble kitchen in Birmingham, England across the Atlantic to you lovely people to hopefully enjoy.
I will soon be going back to the place where this journey started, Kassiopi, Corfu.
It’s here at this historically traditional little fishing village, just North east of Corfu where the idea for my blog “Recipes from my travels” was born just over a three and a half years ago.
Two years prior to visiting Kassiopi, I nearly passed away with a serious illness, I’m not going to bore you with that, but I was in a very dark place having had to retire from a career I loved…Being a Chef.
This story has been highlighted many times before but being here rekindled that passion to enjoy life once more…..five years later, that’s exactly what I’m doing…not taking life for granted as every second is precious and trying to enjoy and capture every moment like a photograph, not only for me to cherish but for others too.
This might not be my usual foodie article, but travel, food and life all come hand in hand to me…so please just bear with me, I promise I won’t get to sentimental lol
In just over three years I have taught myself how to use social media to broaden my knowledge, instead of just being nosey, my geeky ability has now gone from only being able to write swear words upside down on a calculator to stringing sentences along on a laptop. I’m a published author (not only once but three times, soon to be four with my new book all about Corfu’s culinary and cultural heritage soon to be published in the early part of this year )
Now my love for Greek food is common knowledge to everyone who follows my social media and this recipe is everything I love about cooking, no fancy sauces, no fancy swirls or drizzles….just simple no nonsense food that you can leave to slowly cook away while you take things nice and easy.
