Athens Home Chef: LenaLena is a native Athenian who sees cooking as a way to express her creativity and an opportunity to share with others. She loves cooking traditional Greek food for her friends and guests, in the same way she was instructed by the women in her family and uses recipes that come from generations back in time. Her cooking reflects the geographical diversity of her family and resonates both with the Italian influences of the island of Corfu, as well as the spicy riches of Asia Minor that carry the atmosphere of the seductive Orient.
Lena’s beautiful apartment is located in a quiet suburb in the north of Athens, overlooking a big garden, ideal for al fresco dining during the hot summer months.
