What can I say about this dish, its surprisingly flavorful, with mint, oregano, white wine, and a béchamel sauce that contains parmesan cheese, what’s not to love.


  • Moussaka with lamb, ground sirloin, and eggplant topped with a Béchamel sauce incorporated with Pecorino & Parmesan cheese.
  • Tomato and Bacon tart
