Let me begin by telling you a little bit about this wonderful place called Stemnitsa. It is a mountain Village in Arcadia which is located in the Peloponnese in Greece. It is a traditional settlement and is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Arcadia due to its picturesque location and historical churches and mansions. It is situated at about 1050 m elevation and in 2011 had a population of 191!
This wonderful episode of “The List” will be aired tonight…
Special but difficult at the same time…
First off.. I had to dance!! And let me tell you, I’m not very good at it! :-)
You see, in this episode we are preparing a big “party” in the style that is customary in Greece. It is called a “panigiri” and it comes with Greek music, dancing, food and fun for everyone….
Imagine that all of the food that was going to be served at the “panigiri” and was going to feed an entire village had to be prepared in just 2 days!
Luckily I was blessed with a couple of angels… Some ladies from Stemnitsa who really came to my rescue and I owe them all of my gratitude for all of their help and for the way they offered their warm embrace so freely.
It is really one of my favorite episodes and I think you will understand why when you watch it!
I won’t give away any more details or information… Turn on Mega tonight and watch it!
What I will do though is give you one of the recipes we cooked on the show. A great recipe that was given to me by Mrs. Koula.. I changed it just a little but it is sooo delicious!!
Please make this amazing Lagoto - Tomato Beef Stew and enjoy it while watching the episode!!
