I fell in love with gyros about 28 years ago while visiting my sister Pam in Richmond Va. I've made them before, but I think I've finally perfected the perfect blend of meats and spices to suite my palate. This is a winner and keeper. This was so much better than what I've had at restaurants. Cooking with Love & Passion. sw :)
