Athens Rising
my greek table with diane kochilas

In Diane's adopted city of Athens, the food scene has everything to offer, from mouthwatering souvlaki to Michelin-starred haute Greek. In this insider's taste of the Greek capital, the amazing flavors of a bustling modern "ancient" city bubble over in every pot. A stop at one of Diane's favorite souvlaki joints is countered by a visit to one of the city's most cutting-edge restaurants for Greek salad "sorbet" and a stuffed grape leaf that looks like an architect's fantasy. Back in the kitchen, Diane's recipes are decidedly more down to earth, including a traditional Greek salad; homemade street food in the form of a crunchy, irresistible batter-fried cod pita wrap draped in Greek yogurt tartar; and the ultimate Greek classic, avgolemono chicken soup. Experience Athens like never before, through its timeless and groundbreaking cuisine. Greek salad; Crispy cod pita wrap with yogurt tartar sauce; Classic avgolemono chicken soup.
