My knowledge and practice of Greek cookery derives from years of experience cooking for large family and social gatherings at home, for guests on a Greek estate in Evia and more latterly, the Anilio community. A passion for wholesome, tasty Greek food was primarily learnt from my Greek mother who like me, learnt from her mother. Both were excellent cooks. Growing up around other strong Greek women, I also learnt from them and over the decades, have integrated their tips and tricks into my own cooking. Raised in Greece, my mother, a physician, was undoubtedly influenced by Hippocrates who documented that staying healthy and preventing disease was a matter of lifestyle, diet and consuming the correct balance of food. I followed in her footsteps with a career in medicine and have pursued their combined wisdom ever since.
