Greek Orthodox Easter is just around the corner, so if you would like to get an idea of what to prepare, I have put together some of my Easter recipes and a few ideas of what to do what to do with your leftovers.
Kokoretsi is a traditional Greek Easter dish consisting mainly of seasoned lamb or goat offal wrapped with lamb or goat intestines.
Ovelias is a Greek Easter tradition where a whole lamb is roasted on the spit. The word ovelias pronounced Oh-veh-LI-as comes from the ancient Greek word “ovelos” which used to be a wooden or steel rod, where pieces of meat were skewered on and slowly cooked. Nowdays, the word “ovelias” means a whole lamb cooked for Easter on the spit.
