“From: New York’s 25: Taste Of Greece – Oct 16-Nov 18, 2006 “Greek cuisine is so attractive because of the relative simplicity of its recipes. We rely on great quality fresh ingredients to achieve great flavors rather than on complex recipes that call for too many spices.” - Chef Christos Phillippou of Kellari. Prep time is an approximation, Cook time is a guess.”
