Although considered Greek, the iconic Moussaka has its origins in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. According to Greek food expert, Aglaia Kremezi, before the 20th century, there was no Moussaka as it is known today! The first time I ate Moussaka was right here in the Caribbean, in Trinidad & Tobago, and it was made with ripe plantains! Read this week's column for more about this shared dish.
Prepping for the dish takes time but it is totally worth it.
