FETA CHEESE SAGANAKI WITH PISTACHIO MASTIHA CRUST

FETA SOUFFLE WITH MASTIHA AND RED PEPPERS

I originally created this dish as a way to use the mountain of roasted peppers that takes over my kitchen at the end of summer. The addition of Mastiha makes this already elegant soufflé a guessing game at the table as guests try to discern the mysterious, intriguing spice.
