Follow me through the adventures that take place in my kitchen, in restaurants or in other kitchens. Cooking and food are my passions and I want to share my experiences of cooking, baking and eating with you.
I'm a Greek self-taught cook who lives in Chicago. I learned a lot about cooking from both of my grandmothers, my mom and dad, family and friends. Passing on timeless traditions through food is one thing I strive to do in life.
These are my journeys through culinary exploration...

Trader Joe’s gets me every time with their sample station. I was totally sold on the carnitas and guacamole so I got some! So delicious.
Also - this slow roasted pork makes me want to use it to whip up a mean Mexican-style mac & cheese with the pork, roasted jalapeños, caramelized onions, pepper jack cheese. Sounds super tasty. Stay tuned… I’ll eventually turn that idea into reality and post a recipe!
