Homemade Greek | Food

Behind Homemade Greek and its four food-loving owners, there are grandmothers and great-grandmothers from parts of Greece that are famous for their gastronomy and for the observance of their traditions in homemade food. - Smyrna of Asia Minor and Santorini.

These ancestors, that two of the four owners were lucky to meet , brought to mind old recipes, fragrant from the spices of Anatolia, and imaginatively creative from the what was then a small and insignificant island -  Santorini.

The current two and only custodians for these techniques and recipes are Mrs. Ketty, a descendant of Asia Minor and Mrs. Nicoleta, a native from Santorini. Both skilled and master cooks, preserve to this day, the wealth of their knowledge, in the Greek traditional food, cooking it daily for children and grandchildren, relatives and friends, in various celebrations and invitations.

The recipe for the Smyrnaean Soutzoukakia of Mrs. Ketty, is the one that she inherited and learned from her great-aunt Hariklia, who came by boat from Smyrni to Piraeus in 1922. This is the same recipe, which was later cooked by the daughter of her great-grandmother , Stella the mother of Mrs. Ketty, of course it is the same recipe that Mrs. Ketty  cooks today, more than a hundred years later. The same goes for Mrs. Ketty's famous stuffed vegetables “ gemista” and her moussaka. Colors, flavors, aromas of another era combined with care and love for the family and the tradition of our country.

On the other hand, Mrs. Nicoleta grew up in the traditional family taverna in Perivolos, Santorini, while watching her mother Argyro cook for the locals and the few tourists, Greek dishes that she had been taught as a little girl by her mother Margarita or otherwise "The Burikena". Island delicacies such as fresh fish, lamb from Nio (Ios island), the famous potatoes from Naxos and vegetables from Crete.

What can be compared with the ingenuity in the preparation of everyday food in Santorini, being an island poor in raw materials. An arid island, but with soil rich in volcanic ash, it has always produced and continues to produce to this day, the famous fava, the Santorini small tomato, the dry capers and capers leaves in brine , the white eggplant, tomato paste from Santorinian tomatoes, the round petite zucchini. But above all the grapes and wines. - Sweet, sun-dried grapes, Assyrtiko wine, Athiri and Aidani, Nixteri wine also which is a night wine as named, since it is pressed during the night. In addition, a twenty years old, sun-dried wine - Vinsanto, the Holy Wine according to the Venetians who owned the island for centuries.

Mrs. Nikoleta grew up with grandmothers and great-grandmothers and learned by the seaside tavernas, to make tomato meatballs, the honeyed “married” fava , the lamb Niotiko in the hull with Naxian caramelized potatoes,  the Santorinian salad with fresh cheese “Chloro” and caper leaves as well as the veal cooked in lemon sauce.

The recipes and the mastery of Mrs. Ketty and Mrs. Nicoleta are behind every dish served by Homemade Greek as stated by its name.

Authentic recipes of generations and many decades are waiting for you to try them...
