Tsiknopempti

Tsiknopempti 2017

We will once again be celebrating the Greek day of Tsiknopempti on 16th February serving up our spit-roasted ‘pay by the kilo’ souvlas for groups to share with a selection of traditional sides to enjoy – yum!

Tsiknopempti is the Thursday during Greek Mardi Gras marking the beginning of the last weekend that observant Greek Orthodox Church members can eat meat before fasting season. Traditionally, everyone heads out to feast on their favourite grilled meat dishes, eating as many different varieties as possible, hence why the day is also known as ‘Grilled Thursday’ or ‘Feast of the Carnivores’.

Here at Hungry Donkey you’re able to order meat by the kg served with a seasonal salad, selection of dips and warm Greek pita bread. In keeping with the our ethos, all of the meat comes from free-living animals including Cotswold White chicken, Blythburgh pork and Devon and Cornwall lamb supplied by award-winning butchers, Aubrey Allen.
