Kouzounas Kitchen …wonderful food blog

Ekaterina's Greek Expectations

Something very special for you all today! My lovely fellow Greek blogger Krystina Kalapothakos who runs the wonderful food blog Kouzounas Kitchen, has been kind enough to let me share her Keftedes (Greek Meatballs) recipe on here.

As well as being a talented chef who has worked at some of the world’s top restaurants and cooked for a number of celebs, Krystina is also a successful hairstylist.

For more links to Krystina’s recipes you can click on the logo I designed for her on the right hand side menu.

Can’t read, Won’t read!

Ekaterina Botziou is a friend. This article is about people in the UK where she lives. Ekaterina is funny and wise and beautiful and comes from the heart.
