Having a background in Archaeology and Sociology and passion for historic and contemporary foodways, I specialize in the Greek food history and sociology of Greek eating habits.
I am recreator of historical banquets, developer of food events (Edible Narratives: Food as symbol, as metaphor and allegory), the author of the “Language of Taste” – a dictionary of Greek Gastronomy a dictionary of Greek Gastronomy honored by the Gourmand Awards, Winner Greece, Food Literature category- and the “Adventure of food in Greece” (under publ.).
I am also the founder and co-organizer of the Symposia of Greek Gastronomy, which are biennial meetings devoted to all aspects of Greek food and drink (www.greekgastronomy.wordpress.com).
Passionate in sharing my knowledge of Greek food history and experimental archaeology I have created various culinary history events and classes.
