Foodtube: Traditional Greek food by Akis Petretzikis (vids)

Akis is taking youtube by storm with his promotion of Greek cuisine

Greek moussaka
The wonderful Akis Petretzikis has a fantastic moussaka recipe using baked vegetables instead of fried to make it that little bit lighter. Delicious layers of potato, aubergine, courgette and beef, all topped off with a creamy béchamel sauce and a handful of parmesan.

Greek souvlaki
Just when you thought food couldn’t get any tastier Akis comes along with this delicious pork kebab recipe. Tender pieces of meat tossed in herbs and grilled on skewers until beautifully golden. Serve in warm pita bread and top with juicy tomatoes, onions and a good dollop of spicy tzatziki sauce. Full of flavour, wonderfully filling and the perfect food to serve at parties.

Greek salad
Fresh from the beautiful beaches of Marathon Akis gives us his delicious twist on a traditional Greek Salad. Crisp veg and sweet tomatoes set against the natural saltiness of capers, kalamata olives and creamy feta cheese. Colourful and aromatic this traditional side dish is good enough to eat all on it’s own.
