Zita’s virtual baby shower: Kasopita or let me treat you an easy, traditional greek cheesepie!
I met her almost 2 years ago.
She was there, along with many other wonderful food bloggers from all over the world, at Food Bloggers Connect, August 2011, in London:
Zita: where are you from?
Artemis: Athens, Greece
Zita: Oh, I can still remember that tavern in Plaka, Yasemi (do I remember right Zita?)
And conversation just went on and on!
Today, we ‘re keeping our online communication still alive, not only with Zita from Hungary but with many more food bloggers from all over the world: Italy, Belgium, Germany, England, Holland to refer only to a few.
I could never imagine that a 3 day meeting with food lovers would result to a non stop long time relationship!
I love our common passion for good and tasty food, love of all the nice things on earth, life, photography, styling, writing, communicating with people!
I love you people!
And I love actions like these, where we’re devoting a vegetarian/vegan recipe for Zita and her newborn baby!
Here are the rest with their own unique recipes:
from Giulia: scarpaccia,
from Regula: Nourishing Stout & Oat Drink,
from Jasmine: Whole wheat flour cocoa cookies,
from Sarka: Kiwi Carpaccio with Manuka Honey and Pecans
from Emiko: Ricotta and dark chocolate cake,
from Sneige: Pomegranate curd bars with seedy pine nuts crust,
from Simone: Pistache-almond cakes with rosewater whipped cream,
from Karin: Fresh Pea Souffle with Goat Cheese
And I’m wishing you, with all my heart, Zita, your new, wonderful member of your family, will lead you to more creative paths of your passion for food and life!
Traditional cheese pie without phyllo from Epirus
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4-1/2 cup water
- 300 gr feta cheese
- 1-2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp salt (try feta cheese first and if it’s very salty, don’t use any at all)
- Preheat the oven at 350 F (180 C).
- In a big bowl mix flour, water, eggs and salt with a spoon until you get a smooth and runny mixture. Don’t pour all the water at once.
- Grease a baking pan and pour the mixture in. Spread it with the back of the spoon all over to get a thin layer.
- Sprinkle all over the mixture small pieces of butter and feta cheese too.
- Put the pan into the oven and bake for about 20′ or until it gets gold. It’s thin, crispy, tasty and full of flavours. Cut it with your hands in different shapes and enjoy hot with a nice glass of white wine.
