My Greek Table With Diane Kochilas

Santorini: Flavors Of A Volcano

Season 1, Episode 9 of 13

Diane celebrates the intensely flavored food and unique wines of one of Greece's most breathtaking islands, Santorini. Diane hops in a boat to pick capers on this volcanic island. Back in the kitchen she cooks sea bass with briny capers and a dash of minerally Santorini wine and serves the delectable fish dish with fava, a velvety yellow split pea puree classic in Santorini. She visits a renowned vineyard which still practices the island tradition of growing grapes in basket-shaped vines. A local farmer shows Diane how to make the juiciest tomato fritters from tomatoes that have never been watered. Then, Diane smokes eggplants on a stovetop flame to create a luscious spread with capers and tomatoes. There's time, too, of course, to savor one of the world's most celebrated sunsets in full view of the island's majestic volcano. Enjoy the tastes of Santorini with ingredients from field to sea. Fava, puree of yellow split peas; Sea bass with capers; Roasted eggplant spread with capers; Tomato keftedes.
