    ThatSouthernBelle's Note:

    “The simplicity of Greek cuisine forces the use of fresh, flavorful ingredients, which then become the focus of the dish, rather than complex preparations and cooking techniques. At Trata” says owner Chris Georgou, “we want to introduce and expose ingredients that are not well known outsideof Greece. For instance, while everyone knows Feta cheese, Manouri cheese is not as well known, and we use it exclusively in our cheesecake recipe.” - Chef Chris Georgou of Trata. Prep time is a guess, Cook time is an approximation.
