Spicy Feta Dip (Tirokafteri) – While doing research (AKA eating out at restaurants!) for my Greek book (A Little Taste of Greece – out in May!), I kept seeing Tirokafteri on menus and learned that it was a chilli feta dip. This isn’t something I ate growing up or something I had really noticed on menus before – so I knew I had to try it as many times as I could and then create my own version.

So here it is… Spicy Feta Dip or Tirokafteri to enjoy as a dip, on a yiros/gyro or as a sauce even.
