Each spring, 20 hungry university students and I travel to Greece, ferretting out centuries-old olive groves, restored flour mills, traditional ouzeries, celebrity pastry chefs, tested cookbook writers, and young creative chefs.  We taste foods that are comfortingly familiar to our Wisconsin palates, like fresh grilled trout from a farm in the mountains of the Peloponnese, and some that challenge our sensibilities, like cheese cured in baby goat skins. Along the way we revel in food and the friendships it can inspire.

This blog was inspired by these adventures — and by a love for Greek food as it is prepared and enjoyed not only in Greece, but the world over.  As a journalism professor, I was also inspired by National Public Radio’s Hidden Kitchens series, produced by the Kitchen Sisters Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva, as they criss-crossed the United States writing about “the world of street-corner cooking, kitchen rituals and visionaries — how communities come together through food.”

I’m Liz Fakazis and At My Greek Table is where I write about my search for hidden Greek kitchens — wherever in the world they might be found.  I invite you to join and help me on this journey!
