Green Olive and Red Pepper Corn Bread

Carolyn Haas


From "the Greek Vegetarian" by Kochilas.
She says that although cornbread is not thought of as being traditional in Greek cooking, there are several recipes for sweet and savory corn breads that come from the northwest part of Greece. This particular recipe was "born in the bread bakeries of Athens".
