Albania is a country of 3 million people just north of Greece. Their food has Greek and Mediterranean influences, as well as Middle Eastern influences from their time under Ottoman rule. The cuisine changes as you move from the Mediterranean south to the mountainous north.
We selected three Albanian dishes to prepare:
Albanian style salad–full of fresh veggies, topped with an olive oil/balsamic vinegar dressing and Feta cheese
Tave Elbasani–lamb cooked in yogurt sauce
