Today, we are flicking back to Greece. The end of our travels. I am sharing thoughts that our time there inspired, things that have been on our mind. Actually, thoughts that we have touched on in our book. In short, it’s about being human.
No one is perfect, because we are all human. And as we've said before, we are all more similar than we are different. To put it simply, as we travelled we were welcomed with so much love. We were absolutely amazed and humbled by the generosity of people. We were welcomed into people's homes, offered things to have or try from complete strangers, were taken places, if we had no money we were given things with trust that we could leave and pay later, or, most simply, when we would go out for a walk in the evening almost every person we pass would say “evening”.
And then, on return we have had friends who's businesses have been broken into, have seen people just being horrible to each other on social media and have seen so many people without family to support them and invite them into their homes for dinner. And we just wanted to remind everyone, that we are all human, we are all here to support each other, we are all more similar than we are different. And to embrace family, to embrace friends, to share, to celebrate, to love.
This dish is totally inspired by Greece, where there are many versions of "fava dip" (a strange name to us given we've only ever heard 'fava' used to describe broad beans before!). And this is ours. It's super refreshing and best served cold or at room temperature. So great if you feel like something fresh tasting in winter or for those in Europe currently, this is amazing for your hot summer days.
We would like to dedicate this weeks post to all of the people who gave to us so generously throughout our travels. A dip and salad bowl, to be served as an entree or snack, to be shared in good company with bread, good olive oil and a glass of wine.
