Easter in Athens

Easter Sunday and Greece is a giant BBQ.
 Athens transforms itself into a huge neighbourhood where whole lambs are being roasted in yards,patios,garages,sidewalks, in fact anywhere there is enough space.
Any passerby is invited to have a snack and/or a glass of wine.
We celebrated with my husbands family in the center of the city, in a let-me-have-this-cholesterol-bomb "orgy"

Lamb with potatoes baked in the oven. Created by roast speciallist  Takis Brisko!!!

If you think they had the best parts of the lamb meat you are right. Three little ferals and their mother have made this old yard their home.


  1. Wow, that must be something else to have so many people celebrating and acting like one big family!! I hope you had a lovely time! :)

  2. Steve says that the top picture looks like a car accident and thinks you need to call 9-1-1! :D Of course he's just kidding and thinks this celebration sounds wonderful!

  3. It does look like a car accident indeed rofl
    The taste is heaven ;)
