A lot of the stories on this blog revolve around food and in particular, Yiayia’s food.

As well as all the traditional Greek favourites such as tzatziki, spanakopita, cheese pie, kleftiko and dolmades, there are firm family favourites such as pasticio, yemista, kritharaki and moussaka.

Yiayia has been creating these delicious recipes to feed her family for over 40 years and has decided that now is the time to pass them on.

So, together with the Greek God(zilla)’s sister, Eva, we have taken on the enormous task of compiling all of Yiayia’s recipes into book format.

Over the next few months, we will be listening, reading, translating, cooking, writing, rewriting, photographing and tasting every single recipe to share with you all.
