  • Shrimp in tomato and ouzo sauce
  • Lemon chicken with rice

About the Author

Yiota Giannakopoulou grew up in Nafplio, Peloponnese, where she learned to appreciate the generous fruit of the fertile soil. Fruit and vegetables were available in abundance from her granddad’s extensive garden plot: eggplants, zucchinis, figs, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, you name it! Watching her parents cook helped her gain a variety of skills and keep up with tradition. Yiota currently resides in the United Kingdom with her husband, her two cats Sheldon and Hugo, and their two rabbits Beatrice and Rincewind.
