" 'Magali' is a pot where hot charcoals were put to heat the room
when it was very cold."

Jeg er meget glad i Girås!
"Junk Food" kanskje, men det er mye sundt i den og! Jeg foretrekker den uten patates men med sennep, tzatziki, løk,
tomat, agurk og det hele!
Den er vel grekerenes pølse og lompe, prøv da vel!
Navnet kommer som du kanskje forstår av "girå" som
betyr noe med rund/rundt!
Hvordan laver man girå?
Da skal man helst ha en maskin hvor man kan feste et gedigent
grillspyd horisontalt, slik at giråssen går rundt og rundt mens
På grillspyddet er det tredd store skiver med banket svinekjøtt,
- kan være andre type kjøtt også - lag på lag. Bitene kuttes av etterhvert med en slags hånd
Tror at girås selges mange steder ute i verden, har du prøvd?
I love a "Gyros"!
Junk Food maybe, but lots in it is healthy as well!
prefer it without patates and with mustard, tzatziki, onion, tomato, cucumber and all!
This must be the Greek way of a
hot dog, try it!
The name must origin from "gyro" who means round.
How to make a gyros?
They do the gyro on a kind of machine
grill where there is a big horizontal skewer, who goes around and
around. On the skewer is thread thin slices of beaten pork meat
- could be other kinds of meet as well - layer upon layer. Ready
bits is kind of shaven of with small machine!
I think they sell Gyros many places out in the word, have you
In most of Greece, a "pita gyro"
will contain tzatziki,
tomato, onion and fried potatoes
in addition to the meat.
A gyro (pron.: /ˈjɪəroʊ/
lit. 'turn') is a dish of meat
roasted on a vertical spit. It is also commonly served in a
sandwich, called pita gyro or psomaki gyro
depending on the type of bread used, with tomato,
fries and optional sauce, wrapped in pita
or sandwich bread.
To make gyros, pieces of meat are placed on a
tall vertical spit,
which turns in front of a source of heat, usually an electric broiler.
If the meat is not fatty enough, strips of fat are added so that
the roasting meat remains always moist and crisp. The rate of
roasting can be adjusted by varying the strength of the heat and
the distance between the heat and the meat, allowing the cook to
adjust to varying rates of consumption. The outside of the meat
is sliced vertically in thin, crisp shavings when done. It is
generally served in an oiled, lightly grilled piece of pita,
rolled up with various salads and sauces. The pita and gyro meat
themselves are the only obligatory ingredients.
The name comes from Greek
γύρος ('turn'), a calque
of the Turkish döner
meaning "turn", a name which was used in Greece as
well as ντονέρ. The Greek
pronunciation is [ˈʝiros],
but the pronunciation in English is often /ˈdʒaɪroʊ/
or, occasionally /ˈɡɪəroʊ/
The final 's' of the Greek form is often reinterpreted as a
plural in English.
Along with the similar Middle Eastern shawarma
and Mexican tacos
pastor, gyros is derived from the Turkish doner
kebab, which was invented in Bursa
in the 19th century. There are several stories regarding the
origins of gyros in Greece: One says that the first "gyrádiko"
was "Giorgos" who brought gyros to Thessaloniki in
needed]; another legend from a meat production
company states that doner was first introduced in the 1950s in Piraeus
by a cook from Istanbul.
