The recipe for today’s tzatziki has, I’m sure, at least 100 layered years of history. It is the result of various recipes given to me by a number of Greek mothers – which they had passed to them by their mothers and grandmothers
This brings me rather neatly to the answer of a question I was asked today. Why the blog? Why Greek food in particular? Well. I look at my beautiful mother in law and I see an amazing woman who has kept a link to the life she left behind in Greece, alive in her kitchen. She has passed her history and her culture into the hearts of her family with her incredibly delicious, time perfected food. I feel very privileged to have become part of such a rich culture – and though the wonderful Mr K would always remind me how wonderful my own cultural traditions are, for me this blog is a little way of helping to keep that link alive so that we may add many more layered years of history.
