Diane Discovers Her New Athens ‘hood
Athens is a city in the midst of great and exciting change, and Diane just moved downtown from the leafy suburbs. In this episode, she discovers the soul of her new area, Kerameikos, its layers of history, architecture, cultural life and more in the heart of central Athens. Her guide is Nikos Vatopoulos, a journalist and the city’s most renowned urban chronicler. As a thank you, she cooks up a delicious lunch of Spiced Roasted Chicken with Toasted Orzo Pilaf, Kale Caesar with Greek Yogurt and a Crispy Phyllo Ice Cream Sundae with Honey, Nuts and Halva. They share a glass or two of Amyndeon Rosé wine, made from the Xinomavro grape. Amyndeon, the coldest Greek grape growing and wine-making region, is the only Protected Designation of Origin area in Greece for the production of rosés.
