Dimitris Aivaliotis

Chef

At Mana Kouzina-Kouzina’s open kitchen in the heart of Athens you’ll find Dimitris Aivaliotis, the chef behind a seasonal Greek cuisine menu that locals love. He has successfully brought back traditional dishes from all over the country in a gentrified hot spot of the capital. The restaurant, which only serves Greek products and sources from small producers, has received high accolades from both Greek and foreign press, but most of all is a favorite place among Athenians.

Eugenia Makrogianneli

Founder of Eat Yourself Greek

I am Eugenia, a food blogger from Athens. Eat Yourself Greek is my blog, where I collect family recipes and share the secrets of comforting, home-cooked dishes. I get my inspiration from the boisterous streets and the colourful fresh-produce markets of Athens, where food is not sold only from necessity but as nourishment for the soul. So I decided to start a blog and open my very own home kitchen, to have visitors over and cook together, whilst I let them in the secrets of real Greek food.
