What’s in a name?

Simon and Garfunkel…
Greek lamb…
Growing wild and pungent under a Cretan sun…
…better dried than fresh
Profound wisdom…
Pesto pasta…
Basileus…Greek…the King
Anthos… dew of the sea…
More lamb!
Summer Mojitos…

  • It's that thyme of year hey Fran. We've been in the garden all morning trying to thin out the tomatoes. Just making a gougere with fresh eggs and a little fresh basil. I can smell those beauties from here.

    We were out among the wild thyme plants in the Peloponnese just yesterday Francesca! In a few weeks we will be back in Crete — it feels like coming home. I know you understand. xo Jackie
