Fotini loves to meet people and is passionate about sharing dishes from the Greek Islands with her guests. As Fotini says, meals in Greece are a way to celebrate with guests over great discussion and music!

Fotini made us feel right...

Fotini made us feel right at home from the very moment we entered her home. The food we prepared together was delicious, and her recipes were very simple and easy to follow. Highly recommended!
