My Greek Table with Diane Kochilas
Hosted by chef, cookbook author, cooking school owner, and restaurant consultant Diane Kochilas, the 13-part culinary series MY GREEK TABLE WITH DIANE KOCHILAS celebrates Greek history and culture through food. In the series, Diane travels throughout Greece and its surrounding islands where she showcases many of the foods that Greece is known for (olive oil, feta, honey, yogurt and more), while giving a snapshot of the country’s traditions. Then Diane heads back to her kitchen to whip up simple home-cooked meals using the ingredients she highlights in each episode, offering tips on how to cook and pair them in a traditional Greek meal. In addition to hosting her own series, Diane, together with her husband Vassilis Stenos, runs the Glorious Greek Kitchen Cooking School on the Blue Zone Greek island of Ikaria. She is the author of 18 cookbooks on Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, two of which, Ikaria: Lessons on Food, Life and Longevity from the Greek Island Where People Forget to Die (Rodale) and The Glorious Foods of Greece (William Morrow) have won IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) awards. Diane has consulted for many of the top Greek restaurants in North America and is currently consulting chef at Boston’s Committee Ouzeri & Bar, a meze concept. Diane divides her time between New York, Athens and her family home on the island of Ikaria.
