Lamb (price per kg)
Antikristo is one of the oldest and most unique techniques of cooking meat. Traced as far
back in time, as the ancient times of Homer’s Iliad, Antikristo is a traditional way Of cooking
that can be found in different parts of the world but is deeply rooted in Cretan culture.
It has been so popular, because it does not require too much time, preparation, or ingredients.
The procedure of cooking Antikristo almost reminds us of a ritual. To make Antikristo, the
cook will typically use a young lamb or in some rare occasions, a goat. The animal is cut up
in four, seasoned with salt, and passed through huge wooden skewers that are later on placed
around the fire.
Nowadays, the meat is slow-cooked for 4-6 hours and experienced cooks are always looking
after it. Of course, now, before being cooked, the meat is usually marinated or seasoned. What
makes Antikristo such a unique way of grilling meat is that the slow grilling means that the
lamb is given enough time to secrete all Of its juices and develop many different flavors.
