Super Healthy Strawberry Almond Chia Seed Smoothie Recipe

May 31, 2017

 Since I've started My Greek Home I have met (through cyberspace) some incredible people-chefs, authors, influencers, all women entrepreneurs and incredibly motivating!  Each Wednesday I will feature one of these inspiring women. Please visit their site, buy their products and support them locally!

 

Today I am featuring Krystina from Kouzounas Kitchen:

 

Welcome to my world of Greek traditional & modern recipes.  Get ready to dance and drink some ouzo while enjoying our recipes.

 

Growing up as a child,  I couldn’t help but shadow my parents while they were preparing wonderful Greek delicacies in our kitchen. My fascination with phyllo dough started at a very young age. (I believe I was 8 years old when I made my first spanakopita all by myself).  After learning how to master phyllo and spanakopita, I then knew I had a passion for cooking.  My parents watched me go through an intense year of pastry school. While I was in pastry school, I flew to Greece to complete my externship. I was a sous chef on the island of Skiathos. I worked very hard to get through the program and I succeeded. After graduation from Le Cordon Bleu, I gained the knowledge in four main cuisines; Japanese, Chinese, Greek, and Spanish. I just fulfilled one of my long awaited dreams of publishing my first Greek cookbook, Back To My Roots.  Back To My Roots is now available in print and as a e-book through Amazon – Barnes &

Noble.

 

The name Kouzounas originated from my sweet Yiayia, Stavroula Kouzouna Kalapothakou from Mani, Greece who was a fantastic home chef. I learned many of her traditional Greek recipes, and now I can share these recipes with you. Don’t get confused with the Greek word “kouzina” which means kitchen.
