Greek Week ...

At the local Lidl ...

A lot of folks get really excited about it. So yesterday I went to take a look. It has a lot of Greek Style - Where there used to be Greek substance.

Regular converts will know they have changed the packaging, Gone are the Santorini churches with the photoshopped and removed crucifixes. Which is handy so you can tell if they are using old stock.

Do read the labels as some of it is manufactured in Germany, which thinks Greece is one of its remote states anyway. 'Greek Style yoghurt' means its not Greek at all, and comes from the land of the autobahn, as there clearly has been some 'Kraftwerk' going on somewhere ...

If you stick to the pies then the Tyropita its very good, as is the Olive oil (Bargain), and a pretty decent Moschofilero, if you like a nice dry white wine.

We had a go at both - its a work in progress ...


We had the spinach and cheese yesterday, Junior said OXI! so I was despatched to bring home the bicycle wheel sized Tyropita for lunch.

Looks like its made in the same factory as the ones in the freezer compartment in the former Carrefour now known as Sklavenitis supermarket on the ring road ...

However the Carlsberg Mythos does not appear to be exactly flying off the shelves. Someone has panic bought four, since this time yesterday ...


Perhaps it does not travel well, rather like the Retsina ...

Lots of goods left over and reduced from French week, cant think why at all ...
