My Greek Table will give you a taste of Greece that will make you want to pick up the phone to your travel agent and hop on the next flight over the proverbial pond! Diane Kochilas travels from the mountains to the Aegean islands, on a journey that will show you the landscape and flavors of Greece like never. She travels to Crete, the Peloponnese, Athens, Santorini, Ikaria, Lesvos, Volos, Pelion, Ioannina, the Zagorohoria, and Naoussa, meeting some of Greece’s best home cooks and storied food and wine artisans. Together, you’ll discover ancient flavors and great modern food alike, and explore regional and iconic Greek products, such as great Greek extra virgin olive oil, Kalamata olives, feta and other cheeses, herbal teas, greens, and traditional grains.
Join Diane for a feast of food, wine, culture, and history from one of the most timeless cuisines and countries in the world. Mark your calendars for this great upcoming series, co-sponsored by the National Hellenic Society. Check your local PBS channel listings for future episode airings.
