My Greek Table with Diane Kochilas
Coming Fall, 2017, to National Public Television
I am so excited to announce my new Public Television series, My Greek Table, airing this Fall nationally on Public Television. Our presenting station is Maryland Public Television. Resolution Pictures, one of the top TV food production companies in the US with several Emmy Awards under its belt, produced the show.
Stay tuned as we travel to Crete, the Peloponnese, Athens, Santorini, Ikaria, Lesvos, Volos, Pelion, Ioannina, the Zagorohoria, and Naousa, meeting fabulous cooks and exploring uncharted Greece. Together, we’ll discover ancient flavors and great modern food alike and explore regional and iconic Greek products such as great Greek extra virgin olive oil, Kalamata olives, Feta and other cheeses, herbal teas, greens, and traditional grains.
My Greek Table will give you a taste of Greece that will make you want to pick up the phone to your travel agent and hop on the next flight over!
We will visit food artisans and wine makers, sip ouzo and tsipouro, aka Greek fire water. I will teach you to pronounce a few of the 300 indigenous grape varieties that are Greek. And, you might even learn a new Greek word, filotimo, which means something akin to a sense of honor, duty and generosity of spirit that characterizes the true Greece!
Join me on My Greek Table for a feast of food, wine, culture and history from one of the most timeless cuisines and countries in the world. I can’t wait to share one of the most beautiful and delicious places on earth with you!
