After our little trip to Sweden for last month’s Sunvil Supper Club, we’ve decided to go back to Greece and the beautiful eastern Aegean island of Samos. Over the centuries Samos has been autonomous, Persian, Roman, Ottoman and Greek which has left it, like many other islands in the Aegean, with a very mixed heritage, which can be seen both on the island and in its cuisine. To celebrate Samos’ rich culinary history we have decided that for November’s Sunvil Supper Club we will make a Pumpkin Pita Pie.
This is a filo pastry pie, made with layers of pastry interspersed with a mouth-watering pumpkin, feta cheese and mint filling – not to be confused by its sweet counterpart from the United States. This combination of flavours works fantastically well, with the sweetness of the pumpkin and squash balanced out by the salty flavour of the feta, whilst the mint gives the whole dish a fresh taste. The pumpkin pita pie can be served either own or with a crisp salad. With the nights getting longer and colder here, this dish is a great way to bring back memories of holidays on Samos, or to just pretend you are somewhere warm and sunny.
