Tips!

You may be committed to your beliefs - and rightly so - but it is good to maintain a balance and not disconnect from tradition and our loved ones.

So if parents, relatives, and friends are preparing the barbecue and the rest for the traditional barbecue, do not disconnect and suggest your own alternative food options.

However, if you can't imagine coexisting in such a barbecue where meat will be cooked, you might consider the alternative of organizing your own vegan barbecue.

Either way, remember that we should all respect the dietary choices of others.

If the organizers of Tsiknopempti have a charcoal barbecue, take a package of charcoal with you to support the tradition.

Don't forget your serpentine!
