Little cooking Tips, Greek, Mediterranean and International recipes!

Who are we

We are Mirella and Panos. A couple in their late 30’s from Athens, Greece, that has always enjoyed cooking and trying new recipes. Our friends would very often tell us "you guys are doing the wrong job!", as our professions are -unfortunately- not cooking-related.

How we started

We noticed that when we shared our recipes with other people, they were very often excited about them. So, we thought that we must be doing something right. That is why we decided to put all of our recipes in one place, making it easier to share them with everyone! Thus, we created our first blog, started publishing them and became food bloggers!

Soon, we discovered that the people interested in reading the recipes were a lot more than we initially anticipated. We didn’t think that there would be such interest from around the world for our recipes.

What’s cooking

Our recipes are often made with organic ingredients which we prefer to buy locally from smaller shops and firms. Our cuisine is mostly Greek and Mediterranean, with a preference on the traditional, rustic way of making the dishes. But since we love trying new flavors and ingredients, we also cook some popular international dishes even though it’s not always easy to find some of the ingredients here in Athens.

Moving on 
We saw that our visitors had an appetite for something different, fresh and new. That is why we decided to move on and go from a classic blog to our own website, with much more capabilities, that enable the visitor to find what you he’s looking for, using a nicer and easier interface.
