I wonder what you have been learning all this time that you have been reading my blog. It's time (once again) for a quiz to sharpen the mind; all the answers to the question can be found by looking through older posts.

1. What fruit grows on this tree? They will be ready to be picked from October onwards.

Leave a comment on this post with the answers to any (or all) of the questions and you may win this book by Myrsini Lambraki, a Greek celebrity chef well-known in the food world for her book about wild Cretan greens, and her interest in Cretan cuisine in general...

... which is filled with aromas and taste from Crete. Many of the recipes are similar to my own ones. Now you won't have to drag the laptop in the kitchen or print out the recipe when you want to cook Cretan food.

This competition will run for the next ten days. The winner will be announced at the end of the period, where I will also give the answers. If you want to take part, please make sure I can track you down (ie don't leave an anonymous comment). The winner will be picked randomly, even if they don't know all the answers; hey, neither did I until I came to live here!
