Villa Maria's Kitchen offers a culinary holiday designed based on one of Greece’s regional culinary traditions.
A passionate cook and food lover, Elisa has been researching Greek cuisine for more than 20 years, continuously discovering new things. She has worked as a language teacher and translator. She is a keen traveler, who loves to meet people and share with them her passion and knowledge about food. She speaks Greek, English, French and Spanish.
Maria has worked as chef, restaurant owner, and consultant and kitchen manager for many years and acquired a deep knowledge of the Greek cuisine, its philosophy, techniques and history. A specialist in herbs and wild plants, both for their culinary and medicinal uses, she organizes seminars where she rediscovers old forgotten recipes and adapts them in modern demands for wellbeing. One of her main concerns is contributing to changing people’s attitude regarding food.
