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…

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…

Felix – A tiny place in Navigli

It’s not a secret I am deeply in love with Milan and the Navigli area. It is like a micro cosmo where you can live your entire life without the need to go somewhere else in the city (ok for a short period perhaps, then you need to explore the city). Here you can find…

My Avocado toast

We must admit that even food follows fashion. What is mean is that almost suddenly some dishes become so cool that everyone is eating them. It has been like this for some “super foods”: acai, goji berries, maca, quinoa and so on. Now it’s the time of avocado. We love it: from smoothies to nice…

I am totally in love with gluten free pasta. I have not a a celiac disease but when I eat too much wheat products (especially pizza or pasta) I feel like I have eaten soooo much! I have noticed it a couple of years since now and in the beginning I thought it was because…

Happy Birthday – Beer choco cake

So here I am. Happy bday to me. I turned 30 yesterday and I must admit it is a strange feeling, like you’re entering the adult age but at the same time you can dream as if you’re still in your twenties. Turning 30 has been strange. I was dreaming of having a big party…

Lagana – Greek flatbread

I know I am terribly late. I wrote this post on Sunday and almost a week has passed. Somedays I wake up with an urgent need to write (whatever, even a to-do list) but other days are so slow and I cannot even think about writing. Here is a recipe for the Lagana, a flat…

Origano Rome – Feeling at home

The first week of 2016 I have spent almost twenty days living in a hotel. It was quite weird I have to admit. But in the end I was lucky enough to find a nice place, clean and in one of the best neighbourhoods in Rome: Campo de’ Fiori. While working hard all day long…
