I was fortunate enough to have won a contest over at Forgotten Bookmarks. The prize is an amazing cache of 150 cookbooks! I won't be reviewing each and every one but I will review many of the books.
This one in particular is fabulous! I look forward to sampling some recipes and sharing the wonderful meals I am planning. For my review of this particular book please see me at Novel Meals
Thumbing through the book it seemed there wasn't a single recipe we didn't want to try.
So far I have prepared Espana chicken, Pan-Fried Greek potatoes and Chocolate-Walnut Torte Caprese.
Here is Espana Chicken
½ cup pitted California olives
¼ cup Extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1 TB dried oregano leaves
3 cloves garlic minced
1 cut up chicken, about 3 pounds (I used wings and thighs)
¼ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup dry white wine
2 TB chopped parsley
Mix olives, oil, vinegar, oregano and garlic in a freezer bag. Put chicken in bag, seal and marinate 2 hours or overnight.
Arrange chicken and marinade in shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Pour wine into pan.
Bake at 350 F for one hour or until cooked, basting every 20 minutes or so. Sprinkle with parsley.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 1 hour
There will be more recipes shared here from this colorful book. Full of promise to make our table a Mediterranean feast for weeks to come!
Enjoy and if I don't talk to you before the holiday, have a good time and stay safe!
