Fish Roe Salad (Taramosalata)

We put the bread in the water until it is soaked. We use a blender or a mortar to melt the chopped onion. We add the fish roe, we keep mixing for a while and then we add the bread crumb which must be well strained. We mix for a while and we pour the oil and the lemon juice successively without stopping to mix this mixture until it becomes smooth like a cream.

Flutes

We butter the long side of a sheet of dough and put some pieces of delights on it which are sprinkled with walnuts. We shape it like a roll. We do the same thing with the rest of the sheets. We put all the rolls on a buttered baking pan, we bake them in a medium temperature and finally, we sprinkle them with some caster sugar.

The Value of Wine in Orthodox Religion: Old & New Testament

As we know from the writings in the Old Testament, wine acquired distinctive symbolism. After the flood, Noah planted and managed to create his own vineyard. In Exodus, God gave a promise to bless three significant goods for human life: bread, water and wine. The lands and climate in the regions of Hebron and Palestine were conducive for the cultivation of vineyards. Viticulture flourished in a short time and gained great demand, as people cultivated their vines to produce the blessed wine. David hymns wine through his psalms, saying: "And wine that makes glad the heart of man..." (Psalm 104:15) and "You have put gladness in my heart, More than in the season that their grain and wine increased" (Psalm 4:7).
