I am hosting a Greek dinner in my small Astoria, Queens apartment. Astoria has a large Greek population with many great restaurants and Greek markets and bakeries. As such, I know that I had better be up to the task, if this Irish gal (me!) is to offer a Greek menu and in this neighborhood. ;-) However, thankfully I had a Greek aunt (by marriage) who was a great cook. I got my recipes for the stuffed grape leaves and the spanakopita (spinach pie) from her!
NOTE: There are two cats in the home, but host keeps home immaculately clean and cats are never allowed near the food or the guests.
Apartment is located on the third floor, in a building that has no elevator.
Some alcohol included
I am a self-taught cook and have been hosting and entertaining friends and family for over 25 years. I am originally from Boston and have been living in NYC since 2001.
I love creating a warm, 'homey' atmosphere for guests in my home. I am also an experienced host with Airbnb, Wimdu and 9flats, have friends from all over the world, and I love to travel, learn other languages, and immerse myself in other cultures.
