A Celebration of the Oldways of Eating

I had K. Dunn Gifford, President and Founder of Oldways & Sara Baer-Sinnott, Oldway’s Executive V.P.on my Romancing the Table show to talk about Oldways, which is a culinary think tank. www.oldwayspt.org. They discussed their book The Oldways Table and Oldway’s creation of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid and the MedMark food stampthat will help us identify Mediterranean food in the supermarket. (See previous blog on Med Mark & Pyramid) To hear our delightful interview that is archived along with other Romancing the Table shows go to www.romancingthetable.com and click on the Romancing the Table voiceamerica network radio banner link on the home page.

Below is a delicious recipe by Mirsini Lampraki, a cookbook author in Greece that was featured in The Oldways Table book by Sara and Dunn with contributions of essays and recipes from around the food world.

Chicory Casserole

~By Mirsini Lampraki~

Rather than a pie, these greens are nestled in a casserole – a perfect dish for a midweek dinner for a busy family.

Serves 6

½ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 large onions, finely chopped
2 pounds chicory or other greens of your choice
3 tomatoes, finely sliced
¼ cup white wine vinegar
Pinch of sugar
Sea salt
2 cups water
Freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the onions and sauté for about 2 minutes, until slightly golden.
Add the chicory, tomato, vinegar, sugar, salt and water.
Sauté, uncovered, for 5 to 15 minutes, until tender.
Serve this dish warm, seasoned with ample freshly ground pepper.
