Yeah, I've brought skordalia to pot-lucks. If my jokes don't separate
the sheep from goats, this is another filter. I'm left with the
smelly, cynical, laughing folks. (we are probably the goats)

My taramasalata recipie is sort of skordalia plus.

But Kris, or Dimitri - what's that stuff in the jar? Looks pretty
oily. From Krinos, or Peliponese(?)
If Searah can point me to a Greek market, I might could figure it
out. A "recipie"?

Thanks

If you are talking about taramasalata, I have never made it myself, so I
can't help you there
