Join me on Sunday, Decmeber 11th for a Greek Supper Club inspired by the region of Mani. Located on the most western peninsula of Laconia, this area is rugged, it used to be an area known for vendettas and fiercely proud Greeks. Niki h Thanato!
Having visiting Mani a couple of years ago, the memories are still vivid and on December 11th I want you to join me on this culinary jourmey.
