Take us with you on a grocery shopping trip. What’s always in your cart (real or virtual)? Do you hit up farmer’s markets, local bakeries, food coops, etc.?
I love farmers markets! Starting this summer, we are growing tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, peas, beans, and more in my own vegetable garden. In my shopping cart you will always find: almond milk, Purely Elizabeth granola, honeycrisp apples, Siete tortilla wraps, guacamole, and kombucha.
What's the ingredient or spice you cannot live without? Why?
Za’atar. My husband is Syrian and we put it on everything!
How do you enjoy your Kosterina Extra Virgin olive oil?
I love to make home made salad dressings with it. It is also great for mixing with herbs de Provence as a bread dipping oil.
Do you like hosting dinner parties? If so, do you have a dish that’s your claim to fame?
I live for hosting dinner parties! I like to pick a specific country for the theme and coordinate the menu, beverages, decor etc. I make a killer baked brie with mango chutney, carmelized onions, rosemary, and red pepper flakes that is highly requested.
Have you been to Greece? If so did you find a product, dish or drink you loved? Tell us about it!
For some reason, the first thing that comes to mind is the amazing iced coffee super chilled with frothy milk. The greek salads have tomatoes that were just so fresh and tasted nothing like in the US, along with the feta. The fresh fish simply grilled with lemon and olive oil also amazing.
