This past Sunday, I hosted the latest Greek Supper Club at Urban Pantry, just 45 minutes northeast of Toronto, in Uxbridge. The concept was Greek Country Cooking and the setting of a Uxbridge was ideal for a comforting Greek meal.

Greek wine was selected and poured by Kolonaki Group and the Cretan olive oil was supplied by Nisos Importing. I would like to thank the Pagidas family (Urban Pantry) the staff, Carmine Accogli for helping me in the kitchen and Christina Kakaletris, who captured the evening with her photography.
