Diane Kochilas, Greek food guru in New York, on Oct. 4 will be meeting Harvard students interested in learning more about the Greek diet and its benefits.
The chef and cookbook author organized the food event with the sponsorship of the Food Literacy Project and the Harvard Hellenic Society in hope of bringing Greek cuisine and its tasteful and healthy ingredients closer to the American audience.
The event will feature live cooking and various mezedes to sample and will be be held in the Hastings Room in Pforzheimer House at Harvard but there is limited seating.
“My life’s mission is to do for Greek cuisine what Julia Child did for French cooking: to bring my deep knowledge and passion for the Mediterranean’s healthiest food to an American audience,” her official website reads.
Kochilas is the consulting chef at three Greek restaurants in New York City, New Jersey, and Chicago, while she has also authored 18 books on Greek cuisine.
