Από την όμορφη πατρίδα με αγάπη❤
From your recipe , love it 😋
Look I made one of your recipe they turned out realy good and yummy thank you 😊
Can I put my dough that's been kneaded in my instant pot on the yogurt setting for the warmth? Will that work? I don't have a dryer and my house stays pretty cold most of the time.
Also if I don't bake often is it more economical to buy packets of yeast that jars and does the jar need to be refrigerated?
That bread looks so yummy. No surprise!!!
Can't find your receipes
Amazing recipes and great flavours! 🥰

Would you be able to post a video of how to make lamb moussaka please?
Recently found this fabulous page, and I love that she cooks like I do... from the heart. I love Mediterranean cuisine, and her recipes are authentic and delicious .
Hi Dimitra...do you have a Macaronopita recipe that you wouldn't mind sharing? I would love to make one and i do not have a recipe. Thank you Aspasia
Would love to make some of your recipes like your pita bread but can’t find any actual recipe or link to the written recipe. Is there a secret section that I can’t find? Do not have a computer just my phone and you always say the link is below the video but as of yet haven’t seen it. Am an old woman wit it a lot of skills when it comes to finding things lol. Blessings on your day and Thank You in advance for any help with my dilemma.
That round feta bread is on my list to make! Looks Amazing!!
Hello :) An idea for a video... all about refreezing filo dough... how to thaw it again ? how to freeze filled filo? can you freeze cooked filo? ..... also.. how do you keep it crunchy AFTER baking it ? if I put the remainder in a plastic container with a lid, it is no longer crunchy? how do you retain the crunch if you don't have plans to finish the whole tray in one meal! LOL . Appreciate any insight you can give and thank you for all your wonderful detailed, yet to the point videos! also, how old are you? 18 years old??? seriously .... are filo and feta your anti aging secretes? LOL

So cool! This is a very Northeast thing. Takes me back to the good ole days 🤗

Did you know that Carvel Ice Cream 🍦 and Marinos Ices 🍧 were started by Greeks???

CARVEL ICE CREAM!!! 🍦🍨
Athanasios Thomas Karvelas (Tom Carvel) was born in Athens, in 1906, and at the age of 4 he immigrated with his parents to New York.

In 1932, he borrowed $15 from his then girlfriend and future wife, Agnes Stewart, and bought a used truck from the back part of which, he sold ice cream.

On May 30, 1934, on Memorial Day in New York, Tom Carvel, was driving his truck fully loaded with ice cream, when he had a flat tire, a damage that at the time stalled him on the roadside. The ice cream was slowly melting and Tom ran to the nearest shop (a pottery workshop) to get electricity and “save” the ice cream.

When he returned to his truck, he saw that many people had gathered and asked what kind of “soft ice cream” this was. Tom seized the opportunity, set up a bench and started selling ice cream. Until then, ice cream in the United States was exclusively hard, frozen, and his “new customers” were thrilled with this “innovation”.

Two years later, in 1936, he bought the pottery workshop from which he tried to get electricity, turned it into his first ice cream shop “Carvel” and soon refined his idea, thanks to his mechanical skills he built a machine which retained the – made in confectionery – ice cream in soft texture and patented the particular patent. Tom Carvel was the first man in the world to invent what we now know as “soft serve ice cream”.

After World War II, Carvel’s business evolved into one of the forerunners of the type of commercial development we call “franchise”. In 1947 he patented his own brand of chain, while establishing his own school, where he trained new employees.

The “Carvel” stores reached the number of 700, by 1981, and Tom Carvel wrote history in America. The “soft ice cream patriarch”, with his distinctive appearance, evolved into a cult figure on American television. Carvel’s ice creams have appeared in television series and episodes of The Simpsons, where there has been a mimicking episode. Likewise, in a sketch of the “Saturday Night Live” show.

Tom Carvel passed away in 1990, at the age of 84.

MARINOS ICES!!! 🍧 🍉 🍋 🍊 🍓
Marinos Vourderis was a poor Greek immigrant who became the king 👑 of Italian ices.

Vourderis, who was born in Aegion, Greece 🇬🇷 emigrated to the United States in the 1930s, arriving in New York City with just 50 cents in his pocket. With no formal education, he was able to come and make the American dream happen.

He started the Olympic Ice Cream Company, and in 1964 introduced his Marinos Italian Ices 🍧 at the World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, NY. The product grew into a multimillion-dollar company based in Richmond Hill, NYC where it still is today.

Marinos Italian Ices, a beloved summertime treat, can be found in supermarkets, pizzerias, restaurants and pushcarts throughout the country. The company even opened its first official scoop shop in August 2010 in Shanghai, China.

By the time he retired in 2002 at the age of 87, Vourderis' company was earning $6 million annually.

Marinos Vourderis passed away in 2013 at the age of 97.
