I buy most of the spices I use in my cooking plus herbal teas, superfoods, vegan treats, dried fruits, plant based cosmetics and much more from Valsamo (Yperikon) here in Patra. I don’t know how Vasilis does it, but his spices are so fresh, full of flavor with a strong aroma! They are, by far, some of the best herbs and spices Ι have ever tasted! I enjoy walking in his beautiful store while Vasilis and his wife welcome me in their calm and friendly way. Anytime I have asked him for an herbal remedy to help me with something specific such as a light cold or even improved concentration for studying, he has always delivered and it worked! Of course, it would be hard to write this interview without mentioning the smoked paprika they sell there! I asked him for an interview because I wanted to find out how a small business owner in Greece is handling the economic crisis, especially when he sets quality as his priority. I strongly suggest you try anything from his store, which you can now find online as well!
Back in June we posted the first of two posts about food photography. We wanted to interview some other food bloggers on the subject of food photography to find out what they have learned and any advice they might have for others. We are also pleased to announce our nomination for Greece’s first BHMA Gourmet Food Blog awards! We are participating in the Special Diet category so if you feel like showing us and veganism some support feel free to click here and like us to vote for us. Thank you for your support! Now, here is part two of our food photography series:
We might not be experienced photographers, but we love food blogging. I know some of you can’t read Greek (as one of our readers so humorously pointed out), so here is the translation of the food photography project we are working on. This will be a two part series of posts where we ask different food bloggers some questions about food photography. Most of the bloggers we have interviewed are here in Greece but one of them is from the United States coming up in part two. Let’s get started! Continue reading Food Photography Part One
We recently completed this Bamboo Vegan interview and want to share it with our readers. As of this moment Bamboo Vegan is Greece’s only exclusively vegan shop and bakery. They are located in Athens and we love shopping there! Whenever we go there we are greeted with Fotis and Elisavet’s down to earth personalities, warm smiles and genuine conversation. These people are beyond awesome so whether you live in Greece or are planning to visit you should stop by and say hi! We wanted to interview them for our blog to share their story and give you a glimpse of the incredible people they are.
