Greek Goddess – Moussaka

The best moussaka I have ever had was at small and non touristy island of Icaria (Ikaria) , Greece, prepared by an old lady who knew so well what she was doing . It haunted me for years to get it right, to get the taste that was stuck in my mind. I think I finally got it 🙂
By the way, I read somewhere that Icarian people were the longest living in Europe- so I guess….they must do something right!? Try this moussaka and judge it yourself.
