The Weekend Neos Kosmos : 6 February 2016
DIGITAL.NEOSKOSMOS.COM e Eaters If you had to pick a favourite sweet and one savoury ecipe from your website, which would these be? That's a tough one. I would say the peanut butter cheesecake and the lasagna with aubergines. What is your most memorable kitchen/ eating experienc Soumada limon-sous. ence? We had a massive brothers’ brawl over guacamole once. I can’t say more, but we still laugh when we remember it. Do you have a food vice? I am a sucker for pizza. Basically, I could live on pizza variations. I once tried to make a pizza with gyros. Based on your experience, what do people love to eat in Greece? Which foods are more popular? We have witnessed the rise of the brunch oncept as well as several attack waves by burgers of all kinds, but we have now eached a point of maturity and balance. I would have to say that there is no specific 'trend', 'fashion' or 'wave' which prevails and would be easy to identify in Greece when it comes to eating. Every person is different and one's taste in food is most definitely affected by their culture, lifestyle, experiences; the list of factors is endless. There's one thing I can assure you of, however. No Greek can resist a nice, juicy souvlaki. Has the crisis affected you personally? Do you believe it has had an impact on the Greek 'eating-scene'? In terms of food and eating trends, the economic crisis has been a mixed blessing. On one hand it has severely reduced the part of the disposable income which people would normally spend on high-quality food. Yet, at the same time, it has brought a lot of people back into their kitchens. More and more people are trying to satisfy their need for food in a way that is obviously healthier than takeout choices and saves them a lot of money. Also, on a larger scale, the crisis has resulted in the decay of businesses that didn't respect their customers and had low quality standards. re e To check out The Eater's ecipes and tutorials go to www.theeaters.gr Salt-baked sea bass with basil.
