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...

Fried Catfish with fried cornbread, collard greens and macaroni & cheese from Kountry Kitchen in Indianapolis.
Everything about this meal was absolutely delicious. The catfish was crunchy, but not greasy and the breading was full of flavor. The greens were rich and delicious. And the mac was gooey and silky. If you are in Indianapolis and have a craving for soul food… this is the place to go. I’m still regretting not ordering chicken and waffles!
