Welcome to our blog! Here you can learn how to prepare delicious, traditional Greek dishes from recipes used in the home by local mothers and grandmothers! A lot of them are well-known and others perhaps not so well'known outside Greece. These are all recipes prepared by my wife Maria - she loves cooking and I love eating, so we make a great team!
Maria Avlonitou lives on the island of Corfu in Greece and comes from a family of chefs. Her recipes combine know-how with the simplicity of local, traditional Greek cooking.
The recipes are all for 4- 6 servings (depending on your appetite!) but if anything is left over it can easily be saved for the next day, which is what we do. That way, nothing is wasted and you don't have to cook the next day! In Greece we have the habit of erring on the side of too much, rather than leaving anyone hungry.
We wish you all the best with the recipes and hope you enjoy Greek food as much as we do!
