We are part a big extended Greek family that loves food. Effie (on the left with the bun) had a great idea for us to create a cookbook to document all of the amazing food that our family has enjoyed over the years.
This led to a flurry of emails and spiraled into the idea of this blog. Our goal is to gather the recipes for the traditional Greek food we know and love. We have recruited our mother and aunt to show us the ropes, and will convert their recipes from ‘houftes’ (handfuls) and ‘tsibyies’ (pinches) to standard measurements so that these recipes can be passed down to our children and grandchildren. We also hope to share new recipes that have become family favorites in recent years. We’ll post the recipes and photos here, and share them with you as we go. Once we have a good collection of recipes on file, we’ll compile them into a book that we hope will be a family treasure.
This should be fun! We hope you enjoy it too.
