~Happy Friday & Weekend~
Where have I been, and why haven’t I posted much??
Yes those are the famous questions lately from some fellow blogger friends of mine. I have been working the past two months on my first cookbook!! Very excited to put the final touches on the book, and send it over to printing soon. I am thinking mid October it should be in my hands, if everything goes as planned. I don’t want to reveal the name of the book yet, but I can give you a little preview.
My book is based upon recipes from the villages in Greece. Mainly from my family’s village in Mani, but we also share recipes from fellow food bloggers around the world. Some of the recipes are a mix of fusion Greek traditional and modern recipes in one. I am very happy I finally had the chance to sit down and put this book together, with the help of many great friends some are:
Athina from KickingBackThePebbles
Christine from ChristineIt
Diana from LDJuarez
Panayiotis from CyTasty
Eleni from MyEasyGourmet
My mother Karen, my love Nestor, and my best friend Jeanette. Of course I dedicate this book to my grandmother who was one of the best Greek chefs ever.
Let’s get on to the freddo cappuccino recipe!!
Summer time is coming to an end slowly, and what better way to enjoy Summer with a freddo cappuccino.
What is a freddo cappuccino?? (Click on this link for more info) >>> http://greece.greekreporter.com/2013/06/30/summer-coffee-in-greece-frappe-vs-freddo-variations/
Just picture sitting on the beach while looking at the beautiful blue sea in Greece, and sipping on an iced cold coffee drink. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect day?
**I know that a typical freddo cappuccino is made with milk, but some of you may not be able to consume dairy, so I made this a dairy free recipe.
