With Athens as a backdrop, Diane explores the foods that unite us, meaning the foods so many of us have in common regardless of where we are from. Can soba noodles be grecophied? Yes, with a little tahini, shrimp and olive oil! Can Greek filling of a classic spanakopita be repurposed as a filling for an American baked potato? Indeed! Can the idea of a chicken gyro morph into a Greek-style fajita? We're guessing you know the answer! In this playful, informative episode, Diane ventures beyond tradition into the global world, embracing new ingredients, inspired by Athens' vibrant dining scene, and christening a whole bevy of new recipes Greek!
