The Athens Vibe
In this love song to her adopted city, Diane explores the hip side of Athens, which tourists seldom get to see, and invites a friend and local foodie into her kitchen for a taste and talk of fascinating Athens. Under Diane’s insightful guidance, we catch an insider’s glimpse of everything from street art to street food, galleries to hipster bars, and life the way the locals live it in this city on the cusp of reinventing itself as one of the most exciting capitals in Europe. Nowhere is the Athens vibe more evident than in the modern but deeply rooted cuisine that defines this city’s food culture today. In the kitchen, Diane pays homage to modern traditions by reinventing a few classics. She makes an easy pastitsio with wonton wrappers, gives cauliflower and feta a makeover, and, enjoys the contemporary Greek dessert that she and her friend Carolina make together.
