Kali Xronia! My first post for 2016 is about my 4 favorite Greek Food Blogs. These are blogs from which I draw inspiration, and bonus… they are all written in English.
1. Diane Kochilas “Greek Food for Life”
Diane is a Chef, and TV cooking show host, cookbook author and one of the world’s foremost authorities on Greek cuisine. Her beautifully photographed cookbook, Country Cooking of Greece, was reviewed as a “masterpiece” by the New York Times 2012, 100 best books. I’ve made Diane’s Greek Feta & Red Pepper Dip recipe and blogged about her expertise and latest book on the Ikarian diet.
2. Peter Minaki “Kalofagas | Greek Food & Beyond”
Peter is one of Toronto’s finest Greek food experts and author of Everything Mediterranean Cookbook. He teaches Greek cooking classes, does private catering, and hosts Greek Supper Club “pop-ups”. I’ve made Peter’s pork chops recipe, and am lucky to call him my friend.
3. Ivy Liacopoulou “Kopiaste.. to Greek Hospitality”
Ivy is a Greek-Cypriot home cook, whose passion for cooking started much like mine, by watching her mother cook. She is the author of Greek Home-style Cooking, and teaches private and group cooking classes.
4. Mary Papoulias-Platis “California Greek Girl”
Mary is is a native Californian, born and raised in San Diego. Her blog is about the beautiful California coastline, as well as her enjoyment of Greek cooking, and sharing recipes. She co-authored Cooking Techniques with Olive Oil .
I hope you visit and enjoy all of these Greek food blogs. If you try any of their recipes, please let me know which are your favorites. Kali Orexi and Happy New Year! 🙂
