Summer cooking.

A Seasonal Cook in Turkey: Dolma: Summer Vegetables Stuffed with Meat and Herbs
I happened to come across Claudia’s recipe for stuffed summer vegetables and was inspired to make my own. Of course this is a very popular summer dish in Greece too, but as it’s rather time- consuming, I rarely make it.  The good thing about it is that it can also be eaten cold, especially if you make it with  just a rice filling, so it’s handy for taking on picnics near the beach during  summer. Here are two photos of my stuffed vegetables ( ‘Gemista’ / ‘Dolma’) They turned out quite well although next time I will make them a little more spicy.  Anyway, thank you, Claudia, for your recipe. 



  1. Σήμερα είχα γεμιστά με ρύζι και κιμά. Πραγματικά τα λατρεύω!!!

  2. Turkey and Greece share so much! Looks just like our Dolma. Thanks for your encouraging words!

  3. Delicious! If this is also a dish that can be eaten hot or cold, this is an extra bonus. Wow!

  4. Hi,Judy.
    Thank you very much for the holiday message.
    Terribly sorry about the forest fires in Greece :(

  6. Thank you for your kind words. It's quite a long time since I made those stuffed peppers ( and a long time since I updated my blog too!) Yes, please send me some recipes. I'm sure you are an expert cook and I love 'politiki kouzina'!
