Rice pudding, butter, and cream! Oh my in Corfu!
Remembering the first bite of cold, sweet rice pudding with fresh cinnimon from Alexis Periklis's dairy shop in Corfu time makes my whole sensory system tingle! After wandering the streets of Corfu, stopping into butcher shops and fish markets, we peeked into this small shop and ordered one small pot of rice pudding to share between the three of us. We opened up the small container over 10 blocks away. We literally stopped in our tracks, and without a conversation, all turned around to backtrack to the dairy store to order more, in a variety of flavors (chocolate, local fruits, etc.). Locals apparently buy their yoghurt and butter from Alexis, but I cannot imagine leaving the dairy without at least 4 pots of his amazing rice pudding each time! It was so memorable, I had to take a photograph of the shop and its owner solely for the purpose of remembering that treat! (the actual address is 12 Agiou Vassileiou St.). Enjoy, friends from near and Afar!
