Next time your journey takes you through the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Southern British Columbia, step off Penticton’s Main Street and into a world of Greek enchantment, beauty, and outstanding flavours.
The philosophy of our food is simple. Everything that we serve, we make in our own kitchen. That includes our soups, our dips, phyllo pies, our thick yoghurt for our yoghurt and honey dessert, and our dairy and non-dairy ice creams (thanks Linda!). When we can, we harvest vegetables and greens like amaranth and purslane from our own gardens and work with a widening circle of local food producers.
We like to offer authentic Greek dishes, especially from Crete, that feature the flavour and qualities of the ingredients themselves. We feature authentic appetizers like Yigantes, Dako, Vegetarian Dolmathes, Fava and many others that not only nurture our bodies, but nurture our connection to our ancestors and the foods that sustained them. We feature main courses like Rabbit Stifatho, Lamb Shoulder Oregano, Salmon in phyllo and Moussaka that are layered with flavours and demonstrate the wide range of Greek village cooking. It’s true, we bring in Oregano branches from Greece and Barley rusks from our favourite bakery in Crete.
