the appetizer:

Greece is a meeting place between East and West, its cuisine mixing classical Mediterranean cooking with "oriental" influences from the Middle East. Greek food remains true to its roots, like ancient philosopher Epicurus' dictum to "live well and enjoy the simple things in life."

"Heavy" Coffee (Kafes Varys Glykos)

At the end of a good Greek Meal is the wonderful strong Greek Coffee.

Preparation time about 10 minutes.

1 small cup of water
1-1/2 teaspoonfuls of sugar
1 teaspoonful of coffee

Put the water into the 'briki' to heat. While the water is getting hot, add the sugar and coffee. Stir, and as soon as it rises, remove from the heat before it boils completely so as not to spoil the froth.
