Can anyone please tell me a good way to make Greek style instant coffee? I think they call it simply "nes" here. I know you have to whisk the spoon aroung in the coffee with a very small amount of water but I cannot get this right and my coffee comes out like normal instant coffee in England - which I don't like. Is there another way because if you order a nes coffee at Grigori's they don't spend ages whisking a little spon around there. Any tips would be ggreat.
This is my first Easter in Greece. People keep telling me about something called "cocoretsi" and that i will have to eat it this weekend. But what is it? It sounds disgusting but I don't know if this is true of if my family are just pulling my leg. Can anyone tell me what it is and is it actually edible? I guess I will at least have to try some, to be polite, but I am not a big fan of strange foods and would rather avoid anything that is going to be disgusting.
Hi everyone, I'm looking for a juicer. Do they sell these in Greece? I can't seem to find one. Perhaps there are some more specialized shops around which i haven't heard of. I really hope someone can help me out. I also travel quite a bit, so if you know of any other country in Europe (besides the UK) where it's easier to find, please do let me know. Many thanks, Alice
