“My Greek Table”, the cooking show produced by Maryland Public Television and hosted by Diane Kochilas, has been greenlighted for a second season after a successful first season.
The project, which is supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, aired to nearly every part of the United States in its first season and will premiere its second season in early January.
During the first season, Diane Kochilas visited Athens, the Peloponnese, the mountainous north of the Greek mainland, and the islands in the Aegean.
“Together, we discover ancient flavors and great modern food alike, and explore regional and iconic Greek products such as great Greek extra virgin olive oil, Kalamata olives, feta, and other cheeses, herbal teas, greens, and traditional grains,” Kochilas says on the Stavros Niarchos Foundation webpage.
The second season of “My Greek Table” delves even deeper into the delicacies, history, and secrets of Greek cuisine. Kochilas talks with Dr. John Camp, director of Athenian Agora excavations and professor of classics at Randolph-Macon College, about Athenian cooking practices stretching back two and a half thousand years. Then, she prepares “an ancient feast for modern cooks.”
