Green detox smoothie

So today in Italy is the end of the holiday season. We must wait until April for Easter…can’t believe it! As always, as every year let’s be honest, one of the main purposes is to eat less during Christmas. But seriously, ho can it be possible? Sorrounded by the best food both from Italy and…

Porcini risotto #2017

So here we are. Happy 2017! I feel so thrilled like never before for this new year beginning. I have a lot of new projects, a new collaboration starting soon in Milan in the food sector. I am fully committed in eating healthy and going to the gym regularly and most of all my motto…

Happy birthday Mum – choco cake

For me Christmas is such a difficult time of the year…food..is EVERYWHERE. Not only do I eat on Christmas eve, on Christmas day, the second day of Christmas we eat the leftovers…on the 27th it’s my mum’s bday so…food again. And with food more presents of course. Every year I bake a special cake, different…

Christmas cake – chocolate & orange

This year is almost over and I can’t believe it. The past 12 months have been like an hurricane for me. I gave up my job after my studies in public relations. I moved twice: Rome and then Milan again. I said so many NO and so many YES. I felt in love, I broke…

Vasiliki Kouzina: Greek comfort food – in Milan

For years, not only working in the food sector but also blogging and talking to people, the general idea about Greek food is that is is too spicy, heavy, too much oil and garlic. Nothing can be so far from reality. Greek food is made of fresh ingredients, of course we use spices and garlic…

French cookies

Sunday. It’s been a while since I wrote on blog. I feel back on track these days as I am back in the streets of the city discovering new places, new bars and new restaurants. I felt dizzy in the last 2 months due to my new job in the restaurant. I am feeling sick…

Winter salad

Hello November! I am starting to love this month, even if this is the worst time of the year for me: days getting shorter and darker, leaves falling, grey and rainy days in Milan. Four years ago I moved to Milan and I started a new life, finishing my studies and now I am still working…

The beauty of Falls

I have always been a happy person. Then when you grow up you are “forced” to become more serious, more focused on studies and work. I have always been so competitive that losing was not an option for me, as I started playing tennis when I was only 8 years old this tendency to get…

Working in a restaurant…the awful truth

Updating the blog in the last months has been almost impossible…I spent the whole day working, about 12hours per day in the evening. It has been crazy and I felt so bad…walking no stop for half a day, with no rest is so damn difficult and my body sent signals that “hey girl time to…

Almond-carrot cake

There are some flavours that remind you of past summer days, when school was over and the only thing to do was to spend the day playing tennis or swimming. During this summer days a nice option for breakfast or a quick snack after tennis classes was always a mini carrot almond cake. Now that…

Sicily in Milan

I have always been in love with sicily even though I have never been there. Maybe it is because Sicily has so much in common with Greece, due to the history of the island. Food and wine are very similar as Greek cuisine and gastronomy is a combination of past dominations: Italian, Turkish and with…

Apricot cake for July

A new month starts today! I feel thrilled for all the great changes that I have been through the last months: moving to Rome, than decided to follow and realize my biggest dream, starting a new job, moving back in Milan, meeting new amazing people among them my employee and feeling part of a big…
