FAISAL’ S DELICIOUS PAIDAKIA (BBQ LAMB CHOPS THE GREEK WAY)

 

I am so excited about today because I have something completely different. My good friend Faisal from London sent me his amazing bbq recipe.

Faisal is a chef who works in some of London’ s top restaurants such as Kurobuta and the Michelen stared Connayght Hotel.

 

 

He is half Greek, from here in Crete actually which had spend the most of his summer vacations, and passionate about Greek food.

Paidakia is one of the Greece’ s top bbq dishes and Faisal’ s twist on it takes it to another level. It’ s so simple and tasty it get’ s addictive.
