    ThatSouthernBelle's Note:

    From: New York’s 25: Taste Of Greece – Oct 16-Nov 18, 2006 "At Avra, we mainly serve ‘nostalgic’ Greek cuisine, explains chef Fermin Chavez, "the kind of food you might find in a Greek village or on an island. “But we allow ourselves creative license, just enough so that we are always considered Greek” adds manager Reno Christou." - Chef Fermin Chavez of Avra. Prep time is a guess, Cook time includes chill time.

    5. 5
      Continue to beat the mixture while slowly adding the warm milk.
    6. 6
      Pour the mixture into another bowl, passing it through a sifter to filter out any clumps.

      With a wooden spoon mix into the egg-sugar mixture, folding in all the ingredients.
    14. 14
      Distribute evenly into the molds of the half-baked crème slowly in order not to disturb the consistency of the crème and continue to bake for another 35 minutes.

    16. 16
