Recipe adapted from Ikaria: Food and Life in the Blue Zone by Meni Valle (£22, Hardie Grant). Meni shares her inspiration for this recipe. “The monastery of Theoktistis is high in the mountains in Pygi, a village on the north side of the island. There is a housekeeper, Maria, who makes visitors welcome and runs a small coffee shop from which you can buy local herbs, spices, homemade sweets and her famous loukoumades.”
