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...

Straight from the Grecian Kitchen… a tasty, quick meal.
Spicy Garlic Rice with crispy prosciutto and sauteed cremini mushrooms
I sauteed some garlic and crushed red pepper flakes in olive oil and then cooked the rice in with it. Meanwhile, I sauteed the shrooms and crisped up the prosciutto in a skillet. When it was all finished I combined it all together and topped it with freshly grated parm. It was the perfect combination of salty, spicy and earthy.
