She has a flair for Greek cooking cooking, as that is her heritage. It was to beautiful watch as well as delicious to eat.
It starts with a tomato sauce, and the essential ingredient:
a clove studded onion. More cloves than you would dare to use were patiently inserted in spirals around the globe.
While she cooked Georgie told us a great story about a young bride who was beginning to cook for the first time, asked her grandmother about a special meal to make for her husband. She was told what to do to make Kapama , but the grandmother insisted on sending a young (embarassed) relative on the bus with a paper bag containing the onion properly prepared to give to the young woman.
Georgie's version was a luscious and unusual dish, a rare treat.
Here is Georgie's recipe for Kapama, which she published in a local cookbook of recipes by musicians and their families.
A toast to Georgie for a wonderful warm family meal that we will not forget!
While we were there, we got another Greek recipe of Georgie's, for "Kefdedes", to share with you:
