Next to food, I love libraries. So when I arrived in Port Hope, ONT, I immediately revisited the Public Library -- with its wonderful collections, events, and view of the Ganaraska River to boot!
There I discovered the 590-page "The Olive and The Caper" (Adventures in Greek Cooking) by Susanna Hoffman, one of the most informative and inspiring Greek cookbooks I have come across. And I have seen/own a few. My own copy is now speeding its way to Miami via eBay!
The Kapama was served with baked Greek potatoes (lemon, olive oil, oregano, garlic) and a salad dressed with olive oil and fig-infused balsamic vinegar. And it was paired with Colaneri "Insieme" 2011 -- a blend of
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc in the Apassimento
Style (meaning some of the grapes were dried à la Italian Amarone-making).
No one was disappointed, and the leftovers just now spoke for themselves -- OPA!
