(This recipe is in autumn theme.) I just came back from Greece. It was absolutely lovely. The weather, the sea, the people, the remains of ancient cultures….. I love it. And of course the food. Not very refined, more rustic but always fresh and with lovely ingredients. And of course the famous Mediterranean diet. I bought olive oil from 2 farmer brothers, who told me that in their youth, their mother used about a litre of olive oil a day in their 8 people household! A very sympathetic custom in Greece is that after the main course you get offered a small dessert and some Raki, for free. The Raki, we did not always finish, but to have just a tiny bite of dessert was wonderful. You feel really pampered and satisfied. This dessert has that same effect. Easy to make, but with a big wow factor. Read the notes for some important succesfactors.
Since we are a Dutch company, of course we cannot have a recipe blog without the pride and joy of Dutch baking: the apple pie!
