Tsiknopempti 2017 Recap

Spread the love

I had a blast cooking at the Paint Box Bistro, a new location in the revitalized Regent Park area of Toronto. Together with 60 dinner guests, we feasted on traditional and Kalofagas-style dishes celebrating Tsiknopempti.

Thank you to Nisos Importing who provided Cretan olive oil and many specialty Greek ingredients for the menu and Victory Wines & Spirits who selected KEO beer of Cyprus and Troupis Wines.
