  1. Lovely post, and tempting recipe, Anna! I saw Veal Kapama and chicken kokkinisto in Jamie Magazine. I must have a look at what the recipes involve and compare with what you said! Those little regional differences are funny.


  2. Whatever it's called, it sounds really good to me. I can't use chicken, though, because my wife refuses to eat chicken cooked in red wine – she says that there's something about the colour which just isn't right. Hmmm. By the way, I'm loving the new look on the blog.


  3. I love the traditional name of his dish! Mom's recipe is always the best in our heart.I would love to follow your blog for more of your delicious cooking.


  4. So are you from Aradippou? My sister in law in from there and we used to go quite often when I was a kid.To give you my ten cents of Cypriot cuisine, the recipe with pork, potatoes, coriander red wine is called "aphelia". Kokkinisto is with any kind of meat and tomatoes and kappamas is with lamb, potatoes, tomatoes and wine with no coriander.
