Top 10 Pics MEME

The very talented and sweet Rosie of Rosie Bakes a "Peace" of Cake tagged me for a MEME "Top 10 Food Pics". The MEME consists of choosing 10 favourite food pictures from my own collections and in return tagging 5 others to do the same.

I don't profess to be a professional photographer but it was a jaunt down memory lane to when I was preparing these dishes and memories of my travels as well. Maybe I am biased by the flavour of some of these dishes and that is why they are my favourite pics!!



1) This first picture is of a tomato pie we prepared at Keartisanal . The photo was taken by R. but it brings back such wonderful memories that it had to be included as one of my favourites.
2) This photo was taken on a Sunday in the town of Metsovo on mainland Greece. These ladies dressed in traditional costume for Sunday at church are returning from the market with their fresh produce and plants. I was lucky enough to tour the mainland and hike with Thordis our fearless leader and a small group of ladies with Astra Tours .



3) Strawberries and Cream Cheese Tart

4) Goat Cheese and Tomato Tarts

5) A Very Good Spinach Salad

6) Moroccan Preserved Lemons


7) Lemony Goat Cheese and Asparagus Stuffed Rouladen
8) Patates Riganates

9) Broccoli Pesto



10) Local Fruits
Now to choose 5 participants(this is a time consuming one which took a couple of days to complete, so, if you choose not to participate I totally understand)

  3. Jen: Blogging is fun so taking photos is part of that as well.
    Peter G: Consider yourself tagged if you would like to do this. I usually choose bloggers that I have seen participate in MEME's...don't want to offend anyone..it's hard to know. But then of course it is not mandatory to participate in any at all:D

  6. They did have wonderful cheese in Metsovo Peter. The scenery through the mountains and the small Zagorian villages, with their pack bridges and hiking would be well worth the trip. Meteora would be a destination as well if you haven't already been:D

  7. I love your photos. I am in love with your first one. That looks delicious.

    I'm finally getting photos on my blog, so one day I hope to make people want to claw through the screen for my food (probably won't happen, but I can dream).
