I greatly enjoy cooking and entertaining, and often host meals and small gatherings in my home.


Living in Astoria, Queens, I know a thing or two about great Greek food (Astoria, Queens is known for its Greek population and great restaurants)! It so happens I also had a Greek aunt (by marriage) who was a fantastic cook, and shared her spanakopita (spinach pie) and stuffed grape leaves recipes with me. I am pleased to offer this meal which includes my aunt's recipes!

+ Salad of baby greens, watermelon, tomato, red onion, feta, mint and flat-leaf parsley in a balsamic vinaigrette
+ Homemade spanakopita (spinach pie)
+ Slices of orange topped with homemade black olive tapenade and fennel seed (palate cleanser)
+ Homemade stuffed grape leaves (filled with tomato sauce, rice and ground beef). Accompanied by sauteed vegetables and tzatziki
+ Dessert: assorted cookies from Astoria’s own Artopolis Bakery
+ Coffee/cappuccino/tea
+ Shot of ‘Mastiha’ to finish off our night!

Afterwards, if the weather is not too bad, we can pop-up to my rooftop to enjoy the view of the Manhattan skyline, various bridges, and also see planes making their descent to nearby La Guardia airport.


The event will occur in my NYC-sized apartment (i.e., 'small' ;-) ...and which is located in Astoria, Queens. Queens as a whole is a very diverse borough of NYC, and in 2015 Queens was voted the # 1 travel destination in the US, by 'Lonely Planet'. My neighborhood of Astoria is known for its Greek, Egyptian and Brazilian populations, among others.

Astoria is located 25 minutes from the Upper East side of Manhattan via subway.
