Welcome to Kali Orexi

Sharing our Greek culinary heritage through video and stories.

How Kali Orexi began…

It all started when Christine (the founder of Kali Orexi) offered some of her mum’s Antigoni’s ntomatofai (tomato-eat dish) to her friend Sara. Sara enjoyed the ntomatofai so much, she asked if her mum would teach her how to make it, so they ended organising a cooking lesson. One thing led to another and today Kali Orexi has become a platform to help preserve our Greek culinary heritage alive for our generation and for future generations to come.
