THE HOST


Agni, who was born and raised in Northern Greece, has a deep knowledge of Greek food’s culture, mostly from the big family meals in the village that are usually full of the most authentic delicacies, as well as from her everyday care of her two children as a typical Greek mom.

Her work environment also contributes to her experience, as she is employed for over 30 years in one of the most elegant and outstanding restaurants of the city. 

As hospitality and caring for other people is her second nature, Agni is definitely a genuine hostess for her guests.

The Menu

 

SALAD

Fresh Seasonal Steamed Vegetables

While the most common vegetables in Greek cuisine are zucchinis, peppers, tomatoes, and eggplants, there is a really big variety at all times of the year.

 

MAIN COURSE

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Being one of the most typical traditional dishes of the country, these rolls are filled with ground pork and rice and doused in a sauce of egg and lemon.

 

DESSERT

Sweet Twisted Pumpkin Pie

Made of traditional pie sheet (called phyllo), this dessert gets really elevated when it gets covered by powdered sugar.

 

DRINKS

Two Glasses of Red Wine per Person

Northern Greece is rich in a vine variety called “black and sour” which gives great red wines with a deep color and light fruity flavors.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Agni’s home is located in the famous district of Toumba, a residential neighborhood near the center of Thessaloniki, widely known for its famous local football stadium. 

The place is easily accessible by taxi, your own vehicle, or bus. Agni’s lunch could be a perfect stop for you, before or after exploring the city of Thessaloniki or a trip to Khalkidhiki beach.
