The recipe is offered by Avali 's Chef in Agios Prokopios.gr)
The minced beef is lightly fried with garlic and onions, chopped tomatoes and salt and pepper. I add some wine for added flavour. The potatoes are thinly sliced and deep fired and then strained. The aubergenes are also thinly sliced, salted, then deep fried and strained. Layer the potatoe in large baking tin, then add the meat mixture on top. Layer the aubergines on top of the meat. The bechamell is made with flour, milk, egg and butter. The sauce goes on top of aubergenes, then kefalotiri is sprinkled on the top to give a nice crispy brown topping to the moussaka.
The recipe is offered by famous Vassilis Taverna in the old Market Street of Naxos.
Food is a big part of everyday life in Naxos Greece. There are many taverns and restaurants, right on the beach and in the charming alleyways that serve both local delicacies and a variety of international cuisine. In Naxos, we suggest trying the delicious meat and game dishes, fresh seafood and cheeses. Naxos wines are also superb and go beautifully with the island's traditional cuisine.
