Souvlaki Meatballs

A fast food Greek favourite transformed into wholesome mediterranean cuisine.  Ground meat turns out the classic souvlaki flavour without marinating.  



Tzatziki is a fragrant, creamy Greek sauce that is served alongside grilled meats, pita, vegetables, spanakopita & falafel.  This version keeps two weeks in the fridge… theoretically.

Salmon Cakes

Our recipe for homemade salmon cakes uses any cooked salmon and can be served in a bun or as the protein for a main course or meal salad.  A fresh filet will produce a flaky, meaty patty whereas canned salmon a softer croquette.

creamy lemon tarragon salmon

Lemon Tarragon Salmon

A snap to put together, this dish using the darling herb of french cuisine, tarragon, is wonderful for entertaining.  Dijon mustard is integral to this tangy, buttery sauce that goes on everything and pairs especially well with salmon and these vegetables.

Moroccan Turkey Tajine

Practically any meat and vegetables can be turned into a moroccan stew using the token spices, dried fruit and nuts. 

Greek Spagsquash Ragout

Greek Squaghetti Ragout

We’ve come a long way from baking squash with animal fat and maple syrup to make it palatable.  Not only a trendy alternative to pasta, this one is a stylish vegetarian dish that satisfies with the meaty texture of extra firm tofu.
