Instead of using ground beef for a bolognese sauce swap it for Italian sausage meat and it makes a delicious change. This recipe couldn't be easier and the end product couldn't be tastier. Thanks to our friends at our local Market Meat & Meet, we've now made this a staple on Britican.

“What is that noise?” (make sure to scroll down to see our first fishing story video below) Everyone started to look around. We were quietly sailing along Lefkas Island in the Ionian Sea doing around 6 knots. The sun was hot, the air was salty and the humidity heavy. Our guest, Admiral Stefano, was helming.

I’ve had shrimp saganaki, mussels saganaki and just plain old saganaki. When ordering plain old saganaki, the cheese comes breaded and fried. YUM! Seriously – it is amazing! The Food Network
Yesterday I wrote a destination review on Bali, Crete ending my piece with a picture of the best ‘Greek Plate,’ I’ve had thus far during my 4 months of travelling through Greece. The plate included 2 meatballs, a stuffed eggplant and tomato in addition to some lovely roasted potatoes. After hundreds of ‘Greek Plates,’ this
On our boat, Britican, it seems that our favourite thing to talk about is food. We anxiously look forward to our next meal and discuss a variety of possibilities.
