September's Recipe: Pastítsio
(Ground Meat and Macaroni Bake)



 

Ingredients:
 

  • 1 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lg. onions, finely chopped
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2-3 tomatoes, skinned, seeded, and diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 lb. macaroni
  • 1-1/2 c. kefalotíri cheese
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  • chopped fresh basil

    For the béchamel sauce:
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 3 c. warm milk
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. grated kefalotíri  cheese
  • grated nutmeg to taste
  • salt & fresh ground pepper

Preparation:

Heat the olive oil, soften the onions in it, then brown the meat. Add the tomatoes and bay leaf, together with some water. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for about 30 minutes. Cook the macaroni in boiling salted water until al dente, drain, and leave to cool. Combine the macaroni with the remaining oil, and spread half in a baking pan. Sprinkle with grated cheese, spread the meat sauce over the top, and cover with the remaining macaroni.

Preheat oven to 400°. For the sauce, make a roux with the butter and flour, then gradually add the heated milk, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the eggs and grated cheese, leaving some for topping and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper, adding more warm milk if necessary.

Pour the sauce over the macaroni and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes until browned on top. Remove from oven, leave to cool slightly, and serve garnished with chopped basil. Serves 4-6.

The Olympics, Today and Yesterday

Olympic Winners of Greece
 

Triple Jump - Bronze
Hrysopiyi Devetzi won the triple jump silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics with 15.25 and the triple jump bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics with 15.23. At the 2004 Summer Olympics semifinal she set a Greek record of 15.32 meters. This performance ranks her in the fourth place of all time triple jumpers, after the world record holder, Inessa Kravets, her greatest rival Tatyana Lebedeva and the twice-olympic gold medalist Francoise Mbango Etone.

Rowing - Silver
Dimitrios Mougios & Vasileios Polymeros of Greece came in second in the lightweight men's double sculls finals rowing competition at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games at Shunyi Rowing-Canoeing Park Aug. 17.

 

Sailing - Bronze
The sailing trio, Sofia Bekatorou, Sofia Papadopoulou and Virginia Kravarioti, offered a bright spot for Greece during the 2008 olympics, landing a bronze medal in the Yngling class sailing. "The competition was really tough," Sofia Bekatorou replied to a reporter. "On the last day there were eight boats fighting for third spot, so from the racing perspective it was really difficult. And the conditions were hard as well. It was raining very strongly, we had high winds and big waves. But with Sofia Papadopoulou and Virginia Kravarioti, we kept our patience during the difficult parts and managed to finish in third place and that put us on the podium."

Taekwondo - Silver
Alexandros Nikolaidis won the silver medal in Men's Taekwondo. The 38 year old Greek athlete also won the silver in the '04 Olympic Games. He was born in Thessaloniki and was the first torchbearer of the '08 Summer Olympics.


 

The Olympic Games are documented historically in the first recorded list of victors in a competition in 776 B.C. In the middle of the 7th century B.C., the shrine of Olympia began to be developed, and the games began to be extended. The Olympic Games ran in a four-year cycle. Only free Greek men could take part, and married women were not allowed to watch. Over time the games were extended to include more and more competitions, and from the 5th century B.C. there were also cultural performances such as poetry readings. When the Olympic Flame was lit in 393 A.D., it was to be for the last time. A year later, the Christian emperor Theodosius banned the games as heathen. Flames, earthquakes, and floods meant that shrines and any thoughts of the Olympics sank to oblivion under the sand and rubble until the 19th century.

The 7th walk takes us to some of the foremost museums of the city. Since there are many museums on this heritage walk, it may be wise to make the walk twice, and divide the visits in two days. In either case, there is also the possibility of a pleasant stroll in the National Garden.
From the Metro station "Evangelismos" and taking the exit to Rizari St, the visitor should either head south for the Military Museum, and continue to the Byzantine and Christian Museum or head north and begin with a visit to the National Gallery.

  Featured Destination: Telos

GEOGRAPHY: Telos, one of the smallest islands of the archipelago, lies between Nisyros and Chalki to the north of Rhodes. It is just 63 sq, km. in area with 63 km. of coastline, a population of 301 and is 290 nautical miles from Piraeus. There is a twice weekly car and passenger ferry link with Piraeus and a connection with Amorgos, the remaining Dodecanese and Crete. A local service operates with the rest of the Dodecanese and Samos and small boats make frequent trips to Chalki. A hydrofoil also operates between Rhodes and Telos. The island's capital is Megalo Chorio and its port is Skala, the main harbour is Livadia. With its many monuments, small settlements and lovely beaches, Telos is a pleasant place for a quiet vacation.

HISTORY: Long before the first human inhabitants reached Telos a species of prehistoric elephant evidently lived there, skeletons of which have been found in the Charkadion cave. Around 1000 BC the Dorians settled on Telos and in the 7th century BC, according to Herodotus, the Teliotes joined the Rhodians in founding the colony of Gela in Sicily. In the 5th century BC Telos became a member of the Athenian League but it later switched its loyalties to Sparta and after 394 BC became independent. It remained independent and flourishing until at least the end of the 4th century BC when it allied itself with Kos. Subsequently it remained a dependency of Rhodes until its subjugation by the Romans. Throughout the Roman occupation, Byzantine times, up the 14th century, its fortunes declined. In 13 it was captured by the Knights of St. John at that time was apparently known as (e) kopi. In 1522, after countless attacks, it fin fell to the Turks and its subsequent fate the same as that of the other islands of Dodecanese.

SIGHTS - MONUMENTS: Megalo Chorio, t island's capital is located in its interior, on north side, most of its old houses being b amphitheatrically around the slopes of the of Aghios Stefanps. Most of the finds from t ancient cemetery are nowadays housed in t Rhodes Museum and a bronze hydria is in t British Museum, London. At the top of the are the walls of the castle of the Knights a within its ruined interior one can see the mains of a cistern and a large church with 1 century wall-paintings. Other places of int est in Chorio include the church of the Ta arch. In the centre of the island is the no adays abandoned village of Mikro Chorio, the northwest of which are remnants of a m dieval tower. Southeast of here is Livadia km. from Megalo Chorio) the second port the island where larger vessels drop anchor. is a picturesque modern settlement with isla architecture in a verdant environment. Oth places of interest on Telos include the Mona tery of St. Anthony, beside the sea, and of S Panteleimon, patron saint of the island, dat to the 18th century and situated in a particular ly beautiful region. It is enclosed within a hig wall and there is a square tower at its en trance. At Aghiosykia there is a ruined medi eval castle. Telos has several sandy beaches with clea blue sea, accessible on foot or by farm vehicle. The most beautiful is Erystos (2.5 km. from Megalo Chorio), while the bay of Livadia is particularly picturesque and the swimming good at Aghios Antonios and Plaka. There is small game in the island's mountainous interior, particularly partridge. Visitors may stay in the hotel at Livadia or in the few rooms for rent there and at Erystos. Private yachts can replenish water supplies at Livadia.
