She shares the philosophy about Greekalicious with the hosts.

At Greekalicious we view food as medicine. When we cook, we cook to nourish the mind, body and spirit. The secret to any successful meal is simplicity, fresh organic ingredients wherever possible, agape (unconditional love) and intuition. Above all don’t be afraid to have a go and to make it a fun experience.

“Helping humanity thrive and realize their limitless potential by equipping them with the know-how to maximize their health and wellness.”

At Greekalicious our philosophy is to teach people to cook simple Greek dishes using methods established in Greek kitchens more than 3,000 years ago. These simple methods have characterized the original and unique flavors of the best Greek cookery. The emphasis is always on simplicity, the harmonious use of ingredients, season in moderation, and an important emphasis on quality. We use wherever possible ingredients that are grown using sustainable and respectable ways.

We teach you how to live a long and healthy life by adopting Ancient wisdoms and philosophies. Philosophies that have being proven to work. A mind, body, spirit approach based on the Ancient Greek wisdom-based diet.

We incorporate the wisdom:

“Let medicine be thy food and food thy medicine” – Hippocrates

“The natural force within each of us is the greatest healer of disease” – Hippocrates

“Nature itself is the best physician” – Hippocrates

Above all we practice an Ancient Greek tradition of cooking with “agapi” (unconditional love).

Greek dishes have been influencing other cultures for thousands of years. Join us and discover why.
