THE HOST

With studies in Interior Architecture and having artistic roots, Eri expressed her culinary inclination early in her life and became an amazing self-taught cook. That art attracted her so much that she collaborated with many restaurants and food places, creating her own menus. 

Her passion is to transmit authentic, rare, or even forgotten traditional recipes from all over the country, along with information about customs, traditions, and habits of the old Greek family. She loves animals and lives with some adorable cats and dogs. 

Being a very friendly and warm person, Eri offers to her guests generously not just delicious food, but also great cultural knowledge.
