So this week my country of choice for food is Greece. I stumbled across this recipe for Gyros at The Girl Who Ate Everything and knew I had to make it! This is a food elicits lovely memories of the last leg of my Europe trek in 2010. Me and my friend Na started in Madrid and 5 weeks later we had made our way to Greece. We spent 3 days in Athens (an amazing city) before taking a bus, coach and hydrofoil boat to get to the island of Skopelos (this is the island that Mamma Mia was filmed on). We chose this island as our final destination on our mega trip to relax a bit before we returned to England.

So today I baked pitta bread from scratch and made some delicious gyros. I used this recipe for pitta bread from Annie's Eats and the above recipe for the gyros with several adaptations...
|It kind of looks like Greek fajitas at this stage!|
2. The gyros I ate in Greece had fries inside them so I made some oven chips to go inside
3. I laid it out like fajitas with all of the bits in separate bowls to be piled onto the pitta bread and wrapped up!
Taste - *****
Speed - ** (pitta bread is time consuming in terms of rising time)
Repeat - DEFINITELY!
I really enjoyed making these and reliving my trip! I have a feeling I will make these for Na soon so we can relive it together!
