In my early days of cooking and baking, my mom would haul me down to the Dayton, Ohio Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church every summer to help the community prepare for our annual Greek festival. One of my favorite weeks was when we would bake Tsoureki, a sweet Greek bread traditionally served at Easter.
Traditionally diples are a sticky-sweet Greek dessert consisting of fried dough doused with a spiced honey syrup. In Opa! The Healthy Greek Cookbook that I co-wrote with Theo Stephan of Global Gardens, she offers a healthy, savory take on the pastry with her Tomato Foldover (Tomato Diples) recipe.
My new cookbook Opa! The Healthy Greek Cookbook is available on Amazon now. Let it take you on a taste tour of Greece through easy to make modern Greek recipes.
