Greece is a meeting place between East and West, its cuisine mixing classical Mediterranean cooking with "oriental" influences from the Middle East. Greek food remains true to its roots, like ancient philosopher Epicurus' dictum to "live well and enjoy the simple things in life."
2 lbs. medium size potatoes
1 cup of oil
Oregano (rigani) to taste
Salt and pepper
Wash the potatoes well and cut them length-wise, place them in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, oregano and the juice of 2 lemons and mix them well. Add the oil and 3 cups of water. Roast in the oven for 60-80 minutes until done.
