by Samantha Bacchus McLeod

I know, if you are here searching, you have the same addiction for Greek Roasted Potatoes as I do.

I spent years dining at various Canadian Greek restaurants in my pursuit of the best Greek roasted potatoes. They are irresistible, right?

I know, if you are here searching, you have the same addiction for Greek Roasted Potatoes.

It was not until I went to Greece on a fishing expedition that I found my most favourite Greek Roasted potatoes. Ironically, the dinner was a pork chop and potatoes dinner served up at the hotel of the owner of the local fish farms.

At the small hotel in Galaxidi city, the chef was literally whipping up trays and trays of them for the dinner crowd. Here was my one big chance to learn the secret of Greek Roasted Potatoes making.

Just a side note here, Greek Roasted potatoes are served with meat, it is more a winter’s dish. On this specific day, it was a cooler evening meal. Otherwise, for most of the fishing trip we ate amazingly delicious dorado.

The simplicity of the chef’s trick is priceless, which made me wonder why we go around trying to make everything more complicated than they should be.

One of my forever goals as a people, travel, food writer is to take the complex and simplify it. I know you are done reading my preamble so without further ado…enjoy.
