Um, think you might be mistaken there Dennis (says she being a know it all again) - 'Lights' are normally another word for lungs - maybe you're thinking of 'fries' that are a little something particular to the male of the species
Bob, your mention of rabbit Stifado reminded me of the first time I tried it. At a Greek family's home where we'd been invited to dinner. At the time we spoke no Greek and their English was limited to a little that the daughter in law spoke. She went through the details of what was on the table, got to the Stifado and stopped, ummed for a moment and said "this is, 'ow you call it... cat Stifado". It took a couple of minutes to work out what she really meant!
Bill, Sorry for being a bit thick,but what did she mean by "cat stifado".
Also thats the last time I have "fries" with any meal I order in future.
She mean't cat stifado, as in purring, meowing and catching mice... It was actually rabbit (at least we think it was, found a jawbone in the mix that was probably rabbit), but I guess similar size, both furry... actually, not many other similarities... tail, ears, leg length... just got a bit lost in translation
Denis, lovin' it

Next time you are down south try Stamatis at Petriti for delicious home cooked chips. There is also a small taverna on the way down to the lagoon past Gardiki who not only cooks fresh chips but they all come from his own potatoes too!

We all know that Easter can be a time of too much drink (which doesn't help when trying new foods), and my first Easter was a wonderful experience on the Island but I guess lambs brain for me is not something I want to get used to, quite a pleasant taste but the texture was oh so not me, and managed to avoid complete embarassment by washing it down quickly with the nearest glass to hand, a half tumbler of ouzo within half an hour I had completely forgotten what the fuss was about, but also started talking complete ouzo affected nonsense...great subject!!

One of my favourite Corfu dishes is Bhourdhato (fish in a red pepper sauce) normally served with boiled potatoes. But once I ordered it at a harbourside restaraunt, only to be given a plate of slimy white fish with some type of red sauce covering it. It was absolutely disgusting. It is still one of my favourites, albeit cooked properly. Yammas

My first meal in Greece always involves tzatsiki and a village salad with lots of olives! By Sooz.
OK have read through likes and dislikes have sat with head in bucket. Sorry cannot eat fish food of any sort - makes me ill, as for some of the other food that has been mentioned well I think I may stay away from that as well.
So have to go with Sooz - Village Salad - Tzatsiki and Olives. Oh and I just might added Village Sausage .

I love the village sausage, giaganties, crispy onions with garlic mayo, crispy corgettes, Greek salad, cheese and spinach pasties, any of these or a combination for lunch and stifado, sofrito, kleftico ,pastistado, village lamb, drunken mussels etc etc for evening meal. Only thing Ive tried that I did not like was dolmades. Oh and dont forget puds, Greek yogurt with walnuts and honey, baclava, honey cake, delicious flavoured ice creams. Roll on 11th June. Well you didnt think I got this size eating lettuce!! xx

Several people have said they don't like Dolmades. How about Lahanodolmades which are white cabbage leaves stuffed with mince and served in an egg and lemon sauce. Absolutely delicious especially in Chrysi's (?) in town.
