The latest video: KO’s Koulourakia

Greek Easter is almost here and so too all the lovely Easter treats, including KoulourakiaGreek Easter cookies. There are many different Koulourakia recipes, but what sets KO’s Koulourakia apart from the others is their intoxicating aroma – a combination of vanilla extract, orange and Chios mastiha. This gorgeous aroma cocktail will fill your kitchen when the Koulourakia are baking and your palate as you enjoy them. They are not too sweet, perfectly crumbly and incredibly moreish, so they may not last long, but if any are left over after Easter, you can enjoy them as a dunking cookie with your milk, tea or coffee.

KO’s Grilled Peppers

Fresh, light and incredibly flavoursome, KO’s Grilled Peppers are a fabulous addition to any summer spread. Serve them as a side with any barbecued meats or add them to your homemade souvlakia for an amazing texture and flavour burst with the barbecued sweetness of the peppers; and the yumminess of the garlic, oregano and olive oil dressing.

…and don’t forget to make them a double delight… sop up all the left over dressing with fresh crusty bread, when the peppers have been eaten up!

How Kali Orexi began…


A few years ago, I offered some of my mum Antigoni’s ntomatofai (tomato-eat dish) to my friend Sara. Sara enjoyed the ntomatofai so much, she asked if my mum would teach her how to make it. As it was also one of my favourite dishes and I had yet to learn it, I organised a cooking lesson for both of us. When other friends heard about this cooking lesson, they also wanted to join. The numbers grew, so the venue changed from my mum’s kitchen to my kitchen (now the kitchen used in filming Kali Orexi). Read more…
