‘Tiro’ is derived from the Greek word tiri (cheese) and kafteri means hot, so essentially tirokafteri means a hot cheese. Traditionally it is made with feta and hot peppers or chillies, but my version has a few extras.


This recipe is from My Greek Family Table, by Maria Benardis. RRP $59.99. Penguin Books.

An excellent recipe from a brilliant chef. My only other remarks are to buy AUTHENTIC Greek Feta and Yoghurt as others WILL detract from the flavours.
