You can bake as tasty “kleftiko” from the comfort of your home, and following a recipe that will pleasantly surprise you with its ease. Accompany this traditional dish with red wine Playia Cuvée Spéciale from Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades and live carefree Sunday days in the village, from your home.
