Friday’s event had required quite some planning on my part – especially on my part because I’m not much the type for ‘wild cooking’ which is exactly why we had gotten Miranda Tringis from Cyherbia Organic Herbs of Cyprus to teach us. But still, I had to have some food ready. So I had hit the local farmers market and just bought everything green and ‘wild looking’ I could get my hands on. The famers were as always lovely and tried to be helpful, but mostly I was told to boil and eat those greens with ‘oliver oil’ and lemon juice.
I was having visions of my guests in front of great bowls of ‘greens’ served with olive oil and lemon juice - probably not a real winner, even with fans of ‘wild ingredients’. So I got my camera out and sent the pictures of my ‘wild purchase’ to Miranda. Being the walking botanical encyclopaedia she is, she sent back names and cleaning/cooking instructions right away.
