Kokkoretsi. The insides of the sheep-heart ,liver,lungs,kidneys,brains, sweetbreads, everything- are cut into small pieces, heavily seasoned with mountain herbs and lemons and threaded on to skewers. The intestines of the animal are cleaned and wound round and round the skewers, which are then grilled very slowly on a spit.

  1. These are all beautiful. I always find myself wondering how many pens you go through, doing your drawings.
