Salt of the Earth -Secrets and Stories from a Greek Kitchen


On this episode I had the pleasure to interview the fantastic Greek author and chef Carolina Doriti about her new book, titled as above.

What is "Kakavia"? "Giouvarlakia"? "Bobota" and "Koliva"? And what's the secret for the best Avgolemono?

Where can we trace the lineage of all those traditional Greek recipes from? 

These and a lot more, in our interview today!

Carolina will be in London 12th till 24th of November, appearing in Saturday Kitchen and fronting workshops at Borough Market in the 17th of November and 18th of November will be doing a workshop. Book here: 

Also she will be cooking at restaurant Vori in Holland Park on 21st and 22nd of November.
