My Greek Table With Diane Kochilas

Olive Oil Everything

Season 1, Episode 4 of 13

Emerald green Greek extra virgin olive oil is the star of this show, as it flows from tree to kitchen with a stop in between at the massage table. Diane goes on a journey to the stunningly preserved town of Monemvasia in the Peloponnese. Greece's liquid gold transforms a simple vegetable medley into a luscious dish and slips between the folds of billowy rice and greens in a succulent pilaf spiked with a squeeze of lemon juice. Olive oil gives dessert a distinct character too. It's a primary ingredient in Halva, an earthy pudding-like creation spiked with dried fruits, orange zest and nuts. Explore the diversity and beauty of one of Greece's most delectable exports. Saitia, greens pancake; Briam, roasted vegetable casserole; Hortorizo, comforting greens and rice; Halva, orange-spiced semolina pudding cake with dried fruits and nuts.
