Hello! My name is Katerina Sakelliou and I was born on the beautiful island of Poros. In this book I will share with you my home, The Odyssey, my food and favorite recipes. So put your apron on, get the pots and pans out and start cooking!
I have been baking and cooking for as long as I can remember. I learned from a great cook, my mother. When I was 18 years old I started working in our family restaurant Spiros.
Next, came our Big Fat Greek Wedding! Our 200 guests were eating in the family restaurant that accommodates 120 people. The bridal bouquet blew off of the roof of the car and Rik forgot his shoes. In front of the altar he was pledging his love for me in his brother-in-law’s footwear, three sizes to big. Soon afterwards Rik and I started Odyssey Centre and as part of this we established our very own cooking center. Now I could teach people how to make their own Greek dishes. A dream come true! When our daughter Dora was born, we could not be happier.
