Greek/Kefalonian Dishes

Can anyone recommend any Greek or local dishes in Kefalonia? We have been visiting the wonderful island of kefalonia on & off since 1998 and would like to try some more authentic cuisine the problem is I don't like CHEESE of any kind, I've tried Kefalonian meat pie and even that I had in Siroco's in Skala (our favourite taverna) had feta in. So I tend to stick to souvlaki or steak but would like to be abit more adventurous, so any recommendations would be appreciated.

Hi Gillyvodka,

Try Beef stifado, rabbit stifado, meatballs, lamb kleftiko (but check with the taverna as the recipe can vary - I don't think any include cheese), stuffed vine leaves (usually a starter but ...), various fish dishes with rice.

Also the recipe for Kefalonia meat pie varies according to taverna. Check with the waiter and chef.

A few ideas

Do you eat vegetables? Briam is delicious, oven baked veggies in a tomato sauce. Pasitsio is a type of Greek lasagne, but made with macaroni sized pasta and oven baked, or moussaka, a lamb based layered dish with potato and aubergine and a bechemel sauce on top. Try a "bifteki fresco" (burger in the UK lol) which are homemade and have wonderful spices and herbs in, served with Greek roast potatoes and salad (forget the bun!!) delicious. Why not make your own little meze from the starter menu, just pick two or three dishes and add a salad? That way you can have a taste of various things.
