From the June 27, 2008 Athens' Plus Magazine. "the long, light violet Tsakoniki (is) from the Peloponnese, which is sweeter and was recently granted the status of “appellation of origin.” You can use any eggplant in this dish if you're not chilling out in Greece while making this dish. "Accompany this dish with a white wine such as a Santorini Asyrtiko." Prep time is a guess.
