My dear friends, we are back from Athens! This gastronomic festival has been a wonderful experience! We really enjoyed our time there: we met interesting and creative producers, we tried a huge variety of amazing greek products, we had a lot of fun. We will tell you all about it in future posts, so stay tuned!
Let’s move on to our weekly column «Cooking with Yoleni’s». I love kneading! This is a procedure that relaxes me and makes me happy especially when I am nervous and want to work off anger and negativity! Homemade bread is a sweet childhood memory for most of us. Making your own bread is magic: combining water, flour and yeast, kneading, letting dough sit, baking and making the bread aroma linger all over the house…Today we are making the ultimate Mediterranean bread using delicious greek products from Υoleni’s, that make it really special: garlic pulp, red pepper and aubergine spread, sundried tomatoes! Can’t be more mediterranean, can it? Enjoy it with cheese or your favorite spread like the one I made with olives.
Take care, my dear friends!
580gr. Flour triticum dicocum Bio «Trinity Farm»
1cup lukewarm water
100gr spread with peppers and aubergines «Goumenisses»
1,5tsp «Driskas» garlic pulp with olive oil
1tsp dry yeast
6-7 «Local products» sundried tomatoes
2tsp «Poliana Gourmet» olive oil with wild thyme
1,5tsp sea salt flakes from Kithira island
In a basin combine lukewarm water with dry yeast. Add flour gradually until you get a dough. Add pepper-aubergine spread, garlic pulp and sliced sundried tomatoes. Knead until you get a non sticky dough. Depending on humidity you may need more water or more flour. Cover with a towel and allow to sit for 1 hour. Then shape into loaf, make lines with a knife and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt flakes. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 50 minutes. Baking time depends on the oven and the size of the loaf. Enjoy!
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Enjoy on homemade bread!
