Following the huge success of Lyndey & Blair’s Taste Of Greece, it will become available nationally on DVD. This seven-part series follows one of Australia’s most recognised food and wine personalities, Lyndey Milan and her late son Blair, as they tour Greece’s fascinating Peloponnese seeking culinary delights, adventure and antiquities.
Over seven half-hour episodes, Lyndey and Blair cook, eat, drink and engage with the locals they meet along the way – a charming yet eclectic mix of home cooks, winemakers, producers, chefs and restaurateurs. While the cuisine of the Peloponnese has a starring role, the historic heart of Greece is not overlooked as ancient sites are explored with an adventurous edge, full of humour and insight.
In each episode Lyndey cooks with a local in a restaurant or private home and creates her own version of a Greek recipe while Blair takes on the more strenuous challenges thrown up by the landscape and traditions, such as bungy jumping in the Corinthian canal and wake boarding in the Aegean Sea.
A selection of special features will also be available including: Sheep’s milk yoghurt in Athens; cooking the freshest squid and sea bass on the beach at Vivari; traditional stuffed eggplant; papoutsakia in Leonidio; visiting beehives on Kythira; cooking local fish recipes at Dimitri’s Taverna in Stoupa; the world’s best chocolate covered figs in Kalamata; and while the cuisine of the Peloponnese has a starring role, the historic heart of Greece is not overlooked as ancient sites are explored with an adventurous edge, full of humour and insight.
