Tripe (kokoretsi) - Greek Orthodox Easter Sunday 2020

Easter Day (Sunday), which immediately follows Holy Week and begins with the Easter Vigil, is the great feast day and apogee of the Christian liturgical year: on this day the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated. It is the first day of the new season of the Great Fifty Days, or Eastertide, which runs from Easter Day to Pentecost Sunday. The Resurrection of Christ on Easter Day is the main reason why Christians keep every Sunday as the primary day of religious observance.

On Easter Sunday we eat baked lamb, potatoes and kokoretsi (tripe shish kebab). For the recipe look here : https://mygreekitchen.gr/greek-kokoretsi/

Hi dhi!. I've tried pigeon in the Netherlands, invited by some relatives. I normally eat game in Greece, but this one wasn't that tender. Didn't like the dish.
Lamb has a smell but it normally goes away with cooking. Mind you the above dish smells quite strong when it is uncooked because of the use of offal all wrapped up with intestines and tripe. After its it cooked it doesn't smell anymore.
My first mother-in-law was British and a chef. She insisted of my introduced to the original British dishes..As you said I am quite adventurous with tastes, but not with crumble and rhubarb... I'd rather eat nothing than these.

You are adventurous, the only thing on your list that I have not tried is pigeon. What did you think of it?
We did not eat lamb growing up because my father could not stand the smell of it cooking as it was a primary and overcooked meat in England during the war. While I like the taste I am also not a big fan of the smell, but that biased thinking was defintely gleaned from my father, I am sure.
OMG Rhubarb Custard Pie is one of my very favourites and it's bitter properties are excellent medicine for the organs.

Hello Nevil. I like to try new things too. I remember eating frog legs and snails in France, scotch eggs and rhubarb in the UK, sushi in Greece and pigeons in Holland. I still detest rhubarb, the rest are OK, and I am a sushi lover.

Hello Janet. The thing is with this sort of food that very few people like to eat it. Personally, I never used to eat it but after 1995 when I learnt how it was made by my mother-in-law (I used to assist her in preparing Easter meal), I changed my mind and I tried it.

Phedra, thank you for liking the kokoretsi. I hope by August all to be fine and Covid-19 a history. Then it would be safe for you to visit Greece.

Jimez, it is very tasty. It can be eaten hot and cold too. Goes well with beer.
