The marriage of sweet and sour is one that withstands the test of time. Though sweet and sour sauces may be associated most closely with American Chinese cuisine, they appear in the cuisines of other cultures, too: for instance, the Italian “agrodolce” and the French “gastrique.” These sauces typically entail a simple combination of sugar and vinegar. In Greece, the traditional sweet and sour dish is not a sauce, but a stew. Our version gets its sweetness from dried apricots, and its sour touch from sherry vinegar used in the broth.
