Pork with leeks and celery

0 comments

This is traditional dish serving on the Lesbos island during the Christmas time. The Greek name is χοιρινο σελινατο (hirino selinato) and is absolutely delightful. I tried it with some kind of shyness, but I tried because I’m big fan of leeks and dry wine even. I do not regret, even I’m not big fan of pork!
