The beautiful island of Corfu (or Kerkyra) is a popular holiday destination, not only for its fantastic scenery but also its tavernas which serve up traditional Greek dishes. Here we’ve got moussaka, a baked aubergine and lamb dish finished with a rich yogurt and cheese topping. Like much of the cooking in the Mediterranean, the spicing of the dish is subtle and restrained but gives a lovely depth of flavour. We’re serving it here with tzatziki, a refreshing Greek salad and tsigareli - a spicy braised spinach dish unique to Corfu. For dessert, we've got a delicacy known as loukoumades (Greek donuts) soaked in a honey syrup flavoured with orange flowers, allspice and cassia and coated with sesame seeds.

The moussaka and the dessert were both lovely. The sides were not great particularly the spinach which was horrible.
