When preparing to post a recipe 'a la Grec' I googled to check on the spelling. And another post was born.
Every country has a name, a name which they call themselves in their own language and often another name which everyone else uses. The list for Greece was quite interesting.
I had thought the title of my recipe would be
a la Grec or even a la Greque
but in French 'Greece' is written Grece with an accent of some sort on the first 'e'.
Maori - Kirihi
Irish - An Ghreig
German - Greichenland
Cornish - Pow Grek
The Greeks on the other hand call their country 'Ellada' or 'Hellas'. Its official name is the Hellenic Republic.
'Greece' came from the latin 'Graecia' and means 'the land of the Greeks.
The recipe is coming tomorrow.
