The Greek cuisine series celebrates Greek history and culture through food
"We travel to Crete, the Peloponnese, Athens, Santorini, Ikaria, Lesvos, Volos, Pelion, Ioannina, the Zagorohoria, and Naoussa, meeting some of Greece’s best home cooks and storied food and wine artisans,” shares chef, cookbook author and restaurateur Diane Kochilas about her new Public Television 13-part culinary series which debuted in October.
In the series, Diane travels throughout Greece and its surrounding islands where she showcases many of the foods that Greece is known, while giving a snapshot of the country’s traditions. Then Diane heads back to her kitchen to whip up simple home-cooked meals using the ingredients she highlights in each episode, offering tips on how to cook and pair them in a traditional Greek meal.
