Welcome to Sofia’s Greka Kitchen
Welcome – Καλώς Ήρθατε!
My name is Sofia.
I am passionate about Greek food and the Mediterranean diet and although I work in the corporate world, cooking Greek food has always been my haven, especially since I now live in the UK. ‘Sofia’s Greka Kitchen’ was born out of my love for Greece and as a way of preserving our family recipes, tradition, and Greek culture.
I grew up in a little village in central Greece with my grandparents and they both taught me to appreciate and respect the value of home-grown ingredients, home reared animals and what they had to offer us.
It was my grandmother and mother who taught me to cook and appreciate our Greek traditions and customs.
My aim is to introduce you to the Greek cuisine and share with you an array of sweet, savoury and Lenten recipes.

A traditonal Greek dish - Briam is a baked vegetable dish packed with flavour! Its the perfect dish to make for any time of the year but particularly in the summer as aubergines and courgettes are at their best.
This dish is vegan, vegetarian, gluten - free, low carb and absolutely delicious!
In Greece we eat it as a main meal with (yes, you guessed it) a good chunk of feta cheese and crusty bread.
You will love it!
Tyropitakia - These Greek cheese pies should come with a warning...they are extremely delicious and therefore addictive!
I am sharing with you my Mama's recipe - we make them together very often as the whole family love them.
Simple to make and you can be creative with the filling by adding finely chopped spinach, finely chopped cooked meats etc
I am sure you will love them!
This is the ONLY pitta bread recipe you need!
We make pitta breads at the Cookery class and people are amazed at how quick, easy and most importantly yummy these are!
So if you are thinking of having Greek souvlaki - follow this recipe for pitta bread - you will love it!
*These pitta breads can be frozen also.
Fakes is a traditional staple of the Greek cuisine. This lentil soup is healthy, high in protein and iron, cheap to make and very comforting. Its definitely a trademark vegetarian Greek dish and we love it! Supporting healthier eating habits?....well, this is definitely a dish worth making!
Spetzofai, is a traditional Greek dish, from the Pelion area of Central Greece.
There are a lot of variations of this dish and in Pelion, they make spetzofai by adding aubergines on the dish....we like to keep it just with peppers.
Its a delicious, sharing dish and you can make it as spicy as you like!
Its best enjoyed, with some crusty bread to mop up all the yummy juices.
