KOUZINA: For the Kitchen Collection

ANGELIKI KOUZINA Collection for the kitchen

The kouzina (Greek for kitchen) is a central part of every Greek's home - and childhood. Our kouzina in Greece is traditional and mostly unchanged for generations. Greek kouzinas are simple, functioning and have just the right tools and dishware to create the most classic home-cooked meals. Next to the stove one would find Greek olive oil, a pepper mill and sea salt, nothing else. Next to the old fashioned marble sink, a ceramic bowl holding the ripest produce and next to that, a parcel of fresh bread. When you're cooking with fresh and few ingredients you don't need much but the essentials. 

Here are some of our favorites we've been collecting over the years and now are able to share with you:

These new items go great with:

*Special note: The ceramics from Sifnos are unique in their design and won't be found far from their makers, the Lembessis family. Get some for yourself and loved ones, before they run out!

I grew up in Austin, Texas where I was first introduced to the colors of Mexican interiors and spent my summers in Greece where my yiayia taught me the holy trinity of Greek cooking: lemons, olive oil, and salt. After studying photography and environmental policy at Sewanee: The University of the South I earned my B.A. in 2009 and moved to Washington, DC to work on political and public advocacy campaigns for The Nature Conservancy where I learned about message development, strategic planning, and feasibility research. In 2014, after the birth of my daughter and in an effort to strengthen my Greek ties and resurrect my photography I launched an e-shop called, ANGELIKI, where I share my hand-picked selection of my favorite Greek designs.

My love for fonts, film, and finesse has always remained true throughout this journey. Today, I live in Atlanta, Georgia and and work full-time as a mother, photographer, website publisher and shop curator
