THE GREEK CONNECTION – MEANDER ORNAMENTS, WORRY BEADS AND ORANGE PEEL SPIRALS or THE PORTOKALI THEORY

I can’t tell you why I always think of Greece and my family in Edessa every time I have an orange in my hands.  It must be the feel of sun and mesmerising aroma of scraped zest of orange skin…  Or just the irresistible feeling that I have in my shopping bag a kilo or two of fragrant suns.  Yes, the coupling of oranges with sun and Greece in summer is somehow an oxymoron on its own as this is a winter fruit.  But I am happy to remember my visits at my Aunty Elpida in Greece at any season!

MURSALSKI CHAI, MAGIC TEA FROM ORPHEUS' BIRTHPLACE

I have been enjoying my monthly getting together with my friends Ilva and  Simi and the way we travel in time with our virtual parties.  In some funny way, I think of us as the Three Sopranos of food photography blogging.  Today, after a month break, we are again together to tell you some of our stories about drinks that bring memories.
