Sample text

We make dakos to order at Kokkari and Evvia, with tomatoes that are too ripe for Greek salad. You could add capers, or substitute feta for manouri. Restaurants on Crete offer this meze year-round, but summer is the time to order it. To grate tomatoes, cut them in half and use the large holes of a box grater. 1 cup coarsely grated ripe tomato Sea salt 6 Cretan Barley Rusks (page 176) 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar ¼ pound piece chilled manouri cheese Thinly sliced red onion for garnish Crumbled dried Greek oregano for garnish 1 dozen unpitted Kalamata olives Put the tomato in a small bowl and season with a pinch of salt.

Bring to a simmer, skimming any foam. Adjust the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, uncovered, until the peas are tender but still hold their shape, about 50 minutes, adding boiling water as needed to keep them covered. Do not allow the peas to overcook or you will have trouble draining them. Drain well in a fine-mesh sieve, reserving the liquid. In a food processor, puree the warm peas and garlic with the lemon juice and wine vinegar until smooth. With the motor running, add the olive oil gradually.

Pitting compromises texture and flavor and makes olives taste saltier because of exposure to the brine. When scooped from a properly stored container, Kalamatas are purplish-red, not black. They blacken with oxidation. Refrigerate Kalamatas in their brine with olive oil on top to keep the air out. We use exclusively Greek brands of orzo, the rice-shaped pasta, at Kokkari. Although some Italian manufacturers make a shape that resembles orzo, discriminating Greek diners would notice a difference.
