Earlier this month, Sky Good Food began airing an exciting new series starring celebrity chef James Martin. Visiting and exploring the vast food culture of the Mediterranean, the 28 November episode of James Martin’s Mediterranean featured a look at the culinary specialities from the luxurious 5* Domes of Elounda Resort in Elounda, Greece.
Starting with an assorted palate of Cretan cuisine, James tasted a variety of foods inspired by the different characteristics of the local area. As the episode progressed, he delved into full-dish delights including a Greek salad complimented by fried spring rolls filled with feta cheese and a finely cooked sea bass seasoned with traditional Cretan herbs. All of the recipes captured the culinary philosophy of the resort and complemented its beautiful setting.
Each episode also features James meeting up with local chefs, farmers, and ex-pats as he continues his quest to find out the best way to cook meat, fish, and vegetables in the way people of the region do on a daily basis.
The series airs on The Good Food Network until 1 December 2012.
