Like all great food, Moussaka brings people together, and in my family, celebrations have always revolved around a table of food including this classic Greek dish. Big trays of moussaka, meat, pita and sweets, like baklava. They would be cooking for days in preparation to cater for a familial army.
Mum and Yaya taught me the basics of cooking. Their recipe for moussaka always yielded a HUGE tray which fed the whole family for days, and when the winter months arrive, I still turn to moussaka as a comfort food. This version is scaled down a bit though, as my fridge can only accommodate so much!
