From My Kitchen to Yours

Mezes

Mezes (short for the Greek word mezedakia) are small plates of food served most often as shared appetizers. Whether simple or complex, mezes always make a great finger food for drinks like ouzo or beer.

Main Courses

Soups, stews, and hearty meals are best when they are homemade. Every host wants their meals to shout success. Allow your dinner table to stand out with easy to follow recipes made with simple and fresh ingredients.

Desserts

Greeks are world famous for their dessert from baklava to galaktoboureko so I have you covered there. But you’ll also find brownies and cookies that will make your meal complete no matter the style or holiday.
