Born to Greek parents, Mary grew up surrounded by tradition and a love of food. She travels often and spends time in her family’s home in Greece and nearby Mediterranean countries, where she learns new techniques and recipes to add to her kitchen. Mary teaches Mediterranean style cooking and consults to a cafe, assisting in creating menus, recipes and new dishes.
Mary’s style of cooking is seasonal, simple, healthy and delicious. She is the author of the best-selling cookery book ‘My Greek Kitchen’ and contributes to magazines regularly. Her second book ‘My Mediterranean Kitchen’ was released in October 2012.
She lives with her family in Melbourne.
