Tastes of the Med: Smoked Eggplant + Sweet Pepper Dip with Greek Feta

The exciting thing about cooking is the process of discovery. And not just new foods but old recipes, ones that you make by instinct. And then one day, you come across something unexpected that makes that tried and tested recipe even better. Beautifully plump eggplants and a sweet pepper are first wood-grilled and then turned into a light and fresh dip that is a perfect accompaniment to any summertime cookout.
