Kleftiko / Κλέφτικο

Kleftiko comes from the Greek verb “to steal”. The cooking method is said to originate during the Greek revolution in 1821, when Greece and Cyprus were under the occupation of Turkey. ‘Kleftithes’ (thieves) were a group of bandits who left their villages and lived in the mountains chasing after the Turks and stealing livestock from them. They cooked the stolen meat in sealed pots with wild herbs under the ground, so that the aroma from the cooking would not reach the noses of the Turkish guards.
