Smashingplates recipe and Cyprus Grapes to match Promara, Maratheftiko, Xynisteri

Our guess is as good as yours, until she tells us….but receiving lot’s of encouragement and support can truly make the difference.

Focusing on the cooking is also another!

but how about food matching with wines?

Which wine do you think she would preffer to match her special cooking on this edition of Saturday Kitchen – Slow Braised pork with wilted greens, olives and capers?

a) a rare grape Promara  white wine from Vouni Panayia,  b) a Maratheftiko Rosé from Ezousa or c) a fresh young white Xynisteri?

Can you guess it? Because she will tell us when she’s done.

What a day for Maria – great cooking!

Zambartas, Vins de Chypre C’est quoi ça? Réponse á tout!

Dans un Français fluide l’ oenologue et propriètaire Akis Zambartas fait une mise au point avec Benoit Gaboriaud sur les points forts de Chypre.

“Le vignoble chypriote est le seul en Europe qui n’a pas de phylloxéra. Il y en a trois dans le monde, ils commencent tous par ch : Chine, Chili et Chypre. On a une viticulture ininterrompu depuis 6 500 ans. On a aussi des cépages autochtones. Donc pas de phylloxéra, cépage autochtone planté sur leurs propres racines, c’est ce qui donne l’intérêt à Chypre.”
