I am fascinated by this Portokaliapita (Greek Orange Filo Cake) Recipe by Ronit from Open Table Catering & Cooking School and I can’t wait to make it when next having a Covid-friendly gathering at home. I’m not talking a 1000 person doof gathering or a 200 person private party gathering (ahem) – more of a quiet few hand washed and sanitised friends at home for a sunny winter lunch on the deck or indoors for a warming dinner.
I asked Ronit to contribute a Covid Cooking recipe to the blog as I truly love her style of cooking. I was fortunate to attend one of her cooking schools last year – Healthy Mediterranean was the theme of the day – and I was inspired. I even brought home a few recipes that we have since made and devoured.
During the lockdown Ronit was, of course, forced to push pause on Open Table’s cooking classes and, without large gatherings allowed, the catering side of her business ground to a swift halt. But soldiering on she worked on her impressive kitchen garden and set up a Youtube channel with recipe demonstrations.
