MoonBeams #3 The 'Kolokopittas meets Monkey Shoulder' podcast

Duration 31 minutes

Furniture restorer Sonnia Demetriou tells the story of self-publishing - and then marketing and selling - her book Androula's KitchenCyprus on a plate. A sun-drenched tale of the birth of a book - with food and whisky, of course!

Sonia's website is here and this is her Facebook page. Her Twitter handle is @Cyprusonaplate.

We tasted Kolokopittas, pastries filled with cinnamon spiced pumpkin, fennel, almonds and currants. These were matched to Monkey Shoulder, a blend of 3 Speyside malt whiskies and a very popular base for whisky cocktails. I like it as a longer drink with water, and as a dram with just a drop or two.
