Kleftiko Lamb

Before five hundreds years, some poor Greeks were living in mountains by stilling goods to live.
The procedure that they were following to cook their meat was special and remarkable. They were digging a ground hole in which they put fire. Then, they were covering the hole with dust and leaves, putting the lamb upon and covering it again with dust and leaves. In this way the food were being cooked slowly for many hours and taken the flavour by the leaves. This way of cooking called "kleftiko", which means by thieves.
Today, in "Alati and Poperi" we keep the same flavour cooking this old recipe in a modern way. We cook it in grease-proof paper, using olive oil "OLYA", garlic, onion, mustard and fresh herbs.
