Greek food is always comfort food
Summer is knocking on our doors, and we have to be prepared to taste it 100%.
Because we deserve to enjoy every day tastes that bring joy and smiles to our table.♥
In Greece, there is something magical about eating together. It is an almost sacred family moment, in which every face is glowing, and problems and miseries are magically disappeared. The whole family reunites, the kitchen is full of people cooking, giving a hand, or bringing back and forth to the dining table cutlery, glasses, dishes etc. Everyone is speaking out loud, making jokes, playing with each other, and talking about news headlines, etc. Grandparents, grandsons, brothers and sisters, altogether. Smiles, voices, flavors and aromas. This is Greek comfort food.
This scenery reflects the way we deal with food. Picking the ingredients, preparing the dish, enjoying the taste…
The process is a ceremony that is enjoyed as much as the result.
Best ingredients and love, make Greek dishes what they are.
