Chef Kefi Gets A Greek Sugar Mama

22 Apr

… or something like that.

I’m so excited to announce that Chef Kefi, RN is teaming up with  The Greek Table to bring freshly-prepared Greek meals to a store near you!

Exhausted after a long shift (is there any other kind?) a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon The Greek Table’s line of prepared Greek meals in Whole Foods (also available at Balducci’s, Roots, and Costco). Not usually one for prepared foods and wary of most things labeled “Greek” that are not served to me in a vinyl booth by someone named Gus or Kostas, I was skeptical. What a happy surprise to find the vegetarian (and gluten free!) moussaka was authentically delicious and had not even a drop too much olive oil (a difficult feat for anything eggplant).  I returned the next day to try all the other vegetarian options (in the name of  research, of course) and was thrilled to find the artichoke stew, gigantes, and eggplant with feta were just as good. Flash forward a few  twists and turns, and you can find me giving out free samples of The Greek Table line at grocery stores through the DC area. Fear not, meat eaters–there are lamb, beef, and chicken dishes, too!

You can find me tonight at one of DC’s most-loved Mediterranean restaurants, Zaytinya.  Famed chef Jose Andres and company are showing off the brand new patio with a Greek agorá , featuring happy hour drink specials, live music, and Greek goods for sale. Come find the Demeter’s Pantry/Greek Table stand and I’ll autograph your ouzo glass. Promise.

Zaytinya will also be passing complimentary tastes of their fresh and inventive mezze for all guests to sample. Come celebrate the tastes and sounds of modern Greece in the heart of the Penn Quarter!
