Eating Athens like a local

Athens is a city with a thousand sights to see. It’s easy to spread yourself too thin seeing all of the historic attractions, so don’t forget its food! Athens has one of the world’s richest culinary histories and we can’t wait to introduce it to you. We’ll stroll through Athens’ ancient alleyways, savoring a crispy spanakopita and enjoying a traditional Greek coffee. We’ll walk past small shops with the smell of grilled souvlaki in the air, and explore local markets full of fresh foods. We’ll take you to cozy places where you’ll try recipes passed down for generations and show you the best food that the city has to offer.

Born and bred in Lesini, a small farming village, I had the opportunity to experience age-old customs and traditions, the beauties of rural Greece, and the authentic flavors of its countryside. A memory that led me to culinary school and afterwards to professional kitchens around the country.
Fifteen years ago, when I first moved to Athens, I started to explore it as if I was traveling. Now, as a licensed tour guide, it still is my favorite thing to do
One of my favorite bites is spinach pie with golden crispy handmade phyllo dough and tons of feta cheese.

Greek pies!
I am THRILLED when I get to share authentic Greek flavours and some of my hometown’s hidden spots - not to mention personal and cultural bits and pieces of interesting facts!

Athenian born, traveler, foodie and friend of great wine. Half the days I eat at old school eateries where nothing changes in decades and the other half I search for the new best approaches to our typical dishes. Coming from an island of great cooks, I love comforting foods and especially tomatoes, herbs, mild spices and legumes.
My favorite dish is gemista (stuffed vegetables), especially at summer when the vegetables are ripe and flavorful. Pair it with a nice Greek Sauvignon Blanc and you are in paradise.
As soon as I started traveling I understood that food connects all humans, and 35 countries later I learnt to deeply appreciate Greek culinary tradition and it's uniqeness. Now I am happy to share it with the rest of the world.
