Stories from Greeks around the world.
“Cooking is not just a job, it’s a way of life for me. As the owner of a Greek restaurant in the Netherlands, I take pride in sharing my passion for traditional Greek cuisine with the world. At “Filoxenia,” our family recipes have been passed down for generations, and every dish is made with the freshest ingredients. Whether it’s the best olives, filo pastry, or some authentic DODONI feta, we believe in using only the highest quality ingredients to create the authentic flavours of Greece. And each dish is cooked with love, as it’s always been done in my family.”
“Even though I’m all the way in London, cooking lets me bring the taste of Greece to my family and friends. I love making traditional dishes like spetsofai, where a little feta cheese takes the sweet peppers and rich tomato sauce to a whole new level. And when we gather around the table, Greek cuisine never disappoints—it leaves everyone impressed and fully satisfied. It’s like sharing a slice of Greece, with each ingredient carefully chosen to create an unforgettable memory with the people I love most.”
“My yiayia and mom introduced me to Greek cuisine from an early age, and I fell in love with cooking and the epitome of Greek hospitality. With every recipe I create, I constantly ask myself, ‘Would my Yiayia eat this?’ and if so, we’ve found the perfect meal. Whether it’s the tangy feta in a Greek salad or the creamy yogurt in the tzatziki sauce, perfectly complementing the flavours of a gyro, it’s this delicious inspiration — and the Greek way of welcoming everyone to their table with open arms — that motivates me to create healthy and tasty Mediterranean meals every day.”
