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:
- Traditional Greek Brass Pepper Mill
- Olivewood Serving Set from the island of Lesvos
- *Handmade and painted ceramics from the island of Sifnos
- Cooking with Artists by Mina Stone
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!
