Born and raised Greek in a household where I lived with extended family who spent every day slowly preparing elaborate meals with love and joy. The passion naturally passed down and has expanded to include a variety of cultures and food styles however maintaining the love and joy to share!
My favorite things to cook
New recipes specific to the people who will share the meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sitting in the kitchen while watching my yiayia cook meals or my mom's baking; neither interfering with the other.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to review a recipe and based on what I have learned about the people I know and their specific taste preferences, be able to gauge if something will be a good fit even if I've never made it before.
My cooking tragedies
Attempting to make a roast duck as a new homemaker which turned out to be a complete failure where even my dog didn't eat it!
