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...

“Peanuts. Maple syrup. Some spices—cayenne and thyme. And bacon. All tossed together and roasted until the tacky bacon bonds with the crunchy peanuts, creating what may be the best beer nut in America, now being served at Redhead in New York’s East Village.” - Esquire Magazine
