At last. The First Greek Lady comes to Athens.

Welcome home Arianna Huffington. A lot of excitement has filled Athens, as HuffPost opens up its Greek office. And importantly, a very powerful article on one Greek man's quest to serve food to those in need. http://t.co/JZcsgKGIP0


bringing American Thanksgiving to Greeks in Athens (let the festivities begin)

My annual Thanksgiving dinner for my relatives in Athens nears. Menu includes:

  • Two 7.5 kg turkeys, organic, from Thessaloniki. They shall be stuffed with chestnuts, cranberries, and haloumi cheese. Covered in lot's of Greek bacon. 
  • Loads of sweet potatoes
  • Brussels sprouts with Mykonian louza and anthotiro
  • I am still undecided on the stuffing. Greeks are a funny bunch when it comes to this.
  • Dessert ideas? Pecan pie with  maple syrup flavoured mascarpone cream 


God bless Mykonos (and the USA, and Lefkada)

My partner in crime (refusing to disclose names) is helping with the metamorphosis of this pathetic blog. In the meantime, I am recovering from a glorious trip to America, Lefkas, and Mykonos. 



Instagram folks. As you can see, I have a fetish for red eggs at this time of year.

My laptop died on Good Friday. How fitting.

Reporting from Greece. We are deep in meditation and fasting (OK, maybe I'm exxagerating, although I have attempted to be a vegetarian for 4 weeks now) in the lead up to the grandiose Easter Sunday festivities of roasting lambs on spits while sipping on ouzo and masticha. This picture was taken last year. For more, check us out Twitter (https://twitter.com/mylittlebaklava) and Instagram (http://instagram.com/mylittlebaklava). 



bonne année

It's 2014. We're still idle. Much more happening over on Instagram. http://instagram.com/mylittlebaklava

Working on transforming this blog into a more user-friendly hub for all of you. Coming to your hometown later on this year. Until then, happy cooking.
