Evia - An Island Hiding In Plain Sight

Evia, the second-largest Greek island after Crete, is a culinary wonderland hiding in plain sight, just over an hour from Athens. Diane heads to this emerald jewel in search of mushrooms and other earthly delights. There, she takes an inspiring walk with a local mushroom forager who also happens to cultivate the world's favorite edible fungi and with him cooks up one of his favorite recipes for mushrooms 'kritharoto,' with orzo. Evia is also home to everything from great seafood to long-standing shepherding traditions, ancient spas and snow-capped mountains. Back in her own kitchen, mushrooms, wine and a few other local specialties play out in three delectable dishes she creates, inspired by the flavors of this nearby 'secret' land. Mushroom 'Kritharoto' w/Orzo; Manitaria Stifado - Wild Mushroom & Onion Stew Spicy Trahana Soup w/Fresh Seafood; Kapamas - Lamb In Aromatic Tomato Sauce.
