We weren’t only eating vegetables – that certainly won’t sustain you up in the mountains. We had our share of non-veg dishes too. This sausage was a bit like a chorizo, but perhaps more Turkish influenced.
The chicken souvlaki was marinated with a mix of oregano and thyme – typical of Greece.
This fried hard cheese I think tastes like haloumi, but harder.
And of course, big chunks of goats milk feta.
We had plenty of ‘schnitzels’ too. This one is made from pork with a mushroom and cream sauce.
And the favourite lunch-time dish of herders, lamb chop stew with risoni.
After all that eating, there really wasn’t any room for dessert. We only managed it once. Being in Greece, they were super-sweet.
